An online search tool published by Vermont’s leading free market think tank allows Vermonters to search how their own legislators voted on crucial roll call votes including gun control, Act 250, the racial Truth and Reconciliation Commission, pension reform, and the Clean Heat Standard.
On Monday, the Ethan Allen Institute released the final 2022 legislative “Roll Call Profiles.” The profiles include legislators’ votes cast this legislative session and can be viewed here: www.ethanallen.org/rc_profiles.
The profiles demonstrate how Vermont lawmakers voted on bills to adopt the Clean Heat Standard, reform the underfunded pension system, enact new gun restrictions, reorganize the Act 250 permitting process, create a racial Truth and Reconciliation Commission, make town withdrawal from school districts more difficult, along with nearly two dozen other important votes. Each profile contains a brief overview of the issue at stake and links to more in-depth information such as original records, supporting documents, recorded floor debates, and analysis. Importantly, the profiles show each legislator’s voting history from 2013 to the present.
EAI president Meg Hansen said, “We, at the Ethan Allen Institute, are proud to continue providing unique and valuable research that helps Vermonters to hold legislators accountable for their actions.
