Legislative Update 1/12/12
It is time to turn up the heat a bit. There will be a resolution introduced in the Vermont House of Representatives to take a “wait and see” attitude regarding the basing of the F-35 at Burlington International Airport. It is important to gain support for this resolution. It parallels the “open letter” signed by 15 religious leaders in the area. One thing that would help this resolution move along would be for each member of the Stop the F-35 Coalition and the Save our Skies group to send an email to Vermont House members from Chittenden County. Sending such a note to other House members will also be helpful. We need that action now.
In 2010 a resolution was passed that supported the F-35. This was done long before the release of the draft Environmental Impact Statement. At this point we need to invalidate that 2010 resolution.
A copy of the 2013 resolution will be posted as soon as it is formally introduced in the House. This should happen soon. The resolution is currently being reviewed by the attorneys who work for the legislature.
Please help pass this resolution by contacting several of all of the legislators listed below. Since some legislators seldom check their legislative emails, it is best to not use that address when another is provided. Thanks for your help.
