Today a monumental ideological victory in Vermont State House !

Congratulations to Governor Scott who cares about his constituent's future and well- being !

Shame to those democratic legislators who voted to override the Governor's veto !

An immense bravo to democrats Nelson Brownell and Thomas Bock who courageously defied the pathological ideological drivel from the  Vermont enviro/businesses/activists conglomerate who tried so desperately to sink their teeth in Vermont's backs . 

    

"The Vermont House today sustained Gov. Phil Scott’s vetoes of the Clean Heat Standard and the City of Burlington’s charter change requiring landlords show ‘just cause’ for evicting tenants.

The vote for both was 99-51 – one short of the 100 needed to override the veto. 

Democrats Nelson Brownell of Pownal and Thomas Bock of Chester voted to sustain the Clean Heat Standard veto.

“A policy this life-changing needs to be developed in collaboration and cooperation,” Rep. Sally Achey (R-Middleton Springs), a member of the House Energy and Technology Committee that developed the bill, said after the vote. For example, few lawmakers recognized that the IT challenge alone of monitoring and managing a thermal heat credit system among many small businesses. "

That is indeed an earth-shaking development 

Vermonters have had more than enough of Dem/Progs using their veto proof majorities to jam through legislation that is adverse to the economic and social interest of most Vermonters 

I am greatly disappointed there were only two Dem/ Progs with courage of their convictions, instead of the robotic courage of sheep displayed by the rest of the Dem/Progs.

SHAME ON THEM.
MANY OF THEM WILL BE OUSTED IN NOVEMBER 2022 AND 2024

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
