The first meeting of a special legislative summer study committee on Vermont's energy future featured sharp disagreements over what its agenda should be.

The four-member panel is one of two committees that will look at energy issues between now and January. The other will include the full membership of the House and Senate panels that normally grapple with the issues.

At Thursday's session, Representative Tony Klein, chairman of the House Natural Resources and Energy Committee, made clear he did not think the process was going to amount to much.

He and Senator Diane Snelling argued over the scope of the committee's agenda.
