EAI’s Big Book of Legislator Roll Call Profiles – House, 2013

In 2013, the Vermont State House of Representatives held eighty-eight roll call votes on a wide variety of issues. Some of those votes were for show (of the “who likes puppies?” variety), some were obscure and confusing, some were repetitive (there were several roll call votes on the Gas Tax Increase, for example, and for the sake of simplicity we chose to feature just one), some were important and illuminating. Opinions will vary on which votes fall into each category.

The twelve votes presented here were selected because they are “important” based on the potential impact the legislation could or will, depending upon final passage, have on the lives of the citizens of Vermont. They are “illuminating” in the sense that they allow the citizen a clear picture of the direction his or her legislator is driving the state. And, finally, they were chosen because they fall within EAI’s free market, economic oriented mission as they pertain to individual liberty, limited government and the founding principles of our great nation.

Here is an explanation of how to read each profile…

          Legislators are organized by county. If a legislator’s district covers more than one county, he or she will appear in the county first named in their district (ie. the Lamoille-Washington district members are in the Lamoille County volume).
