2015 Legislative Report
The 2015 legislative session opened with some VBSR priority areas carrying over from the 2014 session. In particular, legislation on earned paid leave made it through the House. Other issues such as Clean Water and Rent-to-Own legislation gained new momentum this session, and VBSR worked closely to influence these policies.
We received tremendous support from our members in 2015, working to advance VBSR’s legislative agenda and making positive change for Vermonters. We want to extend our gratitude to the many members who either spent time writing to legislators, testifying in committee hearings or simply taking time away from their daily responsibilities to support advocacy that truly makes an impact in promoting socially responsible business practices and policies in Vermont.
