On video: Vermont Environmental Collaborative sets legislative agenda

Andrea Stander, executive director of the Vermont League of Conservation Voters

Representatives from the state’s major environmental groups held a press conference on Tuesday to lay out their agenda for the rest of the legislative session.

Andrea Stander, the new executive director of the Vermont League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, announced the list of priorities and goals for the coalition of environmental organizations, including VPIRG, the Vermont Natural Resources Council, Conservation Law Foundation and SmartGrowth Vermont.

The four groups support passage of an omnibus energy bill that expands the cap on net metering, a more integrated approach to permitting, increased investments in conservation and an expansion of the bottle bill.
