House-approved ‘rental registry’ will reduce available housing, Lefebvre warns

Weekly report of how the House voted, from freshman lawmaker from Orange County

by Rep. Samantha Lefebvre

J.R.H.20 and H.R.22 authorize remote participation by legislators in ’22 via American Disabilities Act. Passed by voice vote, I voted yes.

H.447 (Town of Springfield charter) passed on a voice vote. I voted yes.

Rep. Samantha Lefebvre

H.731 (’22 technical corrections):  Passed unanimously.

S.247 (prohibiting discrimination based on genetic information) Passed unanimously.

S.206 (planning and support for individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders) Passed unanimously.

 S.280 (misc. changes to laws re: vehicles) Passed by a voice vote on the floor. I voted yes, although I do have concerns with some of the additions that were added to a “technical corrections” bill. 

S.197 (provision of mental health supports) Passed unanimously

S.210 (rental housing health and safety and affordable housing) – roll call vote result Yeas, 88, Nays, 54. I did not support this. 

The state is facing a huge crisis with the housing market and rental properties are not safe from this as well. There are some cities in the state that have already stood up their own form of the rental registry. The state version has some lingering questions from House Members that will be answered by 3rd reading  – if the city language is vaguer, then would the state still step in? 

I do not feel that the intent of this bill will be executed, and in fact it will create more of a lack of rentals. 

If the intent was just to have there be communication for the state to be able to update landlords on change, then something could be put into place for landlords to be able to sign up for that. This bill is heavy loaded with enforcement and fees.

S.162 (collective bargaining rights of teachers) Second reading of the bill, passed unanimously.

The author is a first-term Republican member of the Vermont House of Representatives from Orange.

  1. Regarding rental registries, why, Burlington & Chittenden Country proper would be ideal for Disney Land to move their Florida circus sideshow on up to as they would be welcomed by countless like-minded culturally evolved minions of malevolence and malfeasance. Let’s go, Brandon!

  3. I began seeing the term “genetic information” on Equal Opportunity statements. What is the purpose of the statement? What do my genes have to do with employment? I found the following information and surmise this was all set up in advance of the plandamic and vax.

    Genetic information. The heritable biological information coded in the nucleotide sequences of dna or rna (certain viruses), such as in the chromosomes or in plasmids.

    The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) – PDF was signed into law on May 21, 2008. GINA protects individuals against discrimination based on their genetic information in health coverage and in employment.

    Genetic information discrimination also occurs when an employer unlawfully obtains genetic information. For example, it is illegal for an employer to perform an Internet search to find information about an employee’s family medical history (medical conditions of relatives).

    BIG PHARMA SAYS:
    Many skeptics have contended that the mRNA-based Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 shots are not “vaccines” but rather a form of gene therapy that poses untold risks by altering a recipient’s DNA.The federal government and health-care experts have denied that claim. But the president of Bayer’s Pharmaceuticals Division is on record describing the mRNA shots as “cell and gene therapy” and acknowledging public wariness of the technology.

    Bayer executive Stefan Oelrich, LifeSiteNews reported, made the statement at the World Health Summit, which took place in Berlin Oct. 24-26, drawing 6,000 people from 120 countries.

    Oelrich said his company is “really taking that leap” to drive innovation “in cell and gene therapies.”

    “Ultimately, the mRNA vaccines are an example for that cell and gene therapy,” he said.

    “I always like to say: If we had surveyed two years ago in the public – ‘would you be willing to take a gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body?’ – we probably would have had a 95% refusal rate,” Oelrich said.

    Oelrich said Bayer also is working at reducing the populations of Third World countries, investing $400 million in “long-acting contraceptives” and partnering with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on “family planning initiatives.”
