Send an email to Gov. Scott, Speaker Johnson and Sen. Ashe — what's your plan for tackling climate pollution in 2019?
This week Vermont legislators — incumbents and newly-electeds — will return to Montpelier for briefings ahead of the 2019 session that begins in January.
A quick message to Vermont’s elected leadership — Gov. Phil Scott, Speaker Mitzi Johnson and Senate President pro tempore Tim Ashe — asking them about their plans to address climate pollution in Vermont will help ensure that they prioritize the issue.

In your message, you can be general and insist that Gov. Scott, Speaker Johnson and Sen. Ashe act on climate or you can be specific and urge that they review the findings and recommendations of this study (that they authorized and funded) and act accordingly. What’s important is that they hear from you today.
