Shumlin Legislature


Governor Peter Shumlin says he confident that the Vermont Legislature will pass marijuana decriminalization and death with dignity or what opponents call physician-assisted suicide legislation this session.

The Democratic governor also said Tuesday at his weekly press conference that he believes that other bills that he supports that would allow home-based childcare providers to unionize and immigrant dairy farm workers to get drivers' licenses in Vermont will also pass.

Shumlin says the four bills are "the right thing to do."
