House Agriculture Committee Votes Unanimously to Support the Bill

MONTPELIER, VT—The Vermont House Agriculture committee gave their unanimous support to the Working Lands Enterprise Investment bill (H.496) Thursday morning with an 11-0 vote. The bill is expected to move to the Government Operations committee next. The bill comes out of the committee with strong support after several weeks of testimony and committee discussion. The bill would create the Working Lands Enterprise Fund and Board, and the intent of these is “to stimulate a concerted economic development effort on behalf of Vermont’s agriculture and forest products sectors by systematically advancing entrepreneurism, business development, and job creation.”
