The Vermont House of Representatives will meet remotely for the rest of this year’s session, House Speaker Jill Krowinski said.
“Today, the House Rules Committee voted unanimously to extend its declaration of a state of emergency through May 15, 2021, and to keep the House working remotely due to the pandemic,” she said in an email statement.
“A resolution will be introduced tomorrow for the full body to vote to adopt this recommendation. It’s critical we keep the health and safety of the public, staff and members a top priority.
“I recognize it has been difficult to legislate virtually, but l appreciate the commitment by members to take on the hard work and build a recovery plan that leaves no Vermonter behind.”
