Twenty-four lawmakers who don't value Ethics?

When the Vermont House took a final vote on S.8, the bill making Vermont the 48th state in the country to pass ethics laws, there were 24 lawmakers who voted against it. While we don't make any assumptions about the reasons these lawmakers chose to vote against government ethics, we do believe it raises questions about their commitment to a transparent and accountable government. We encourage voters to contact the Legislators below for an explanation.

    You are correct. We need to know their motivation why they voted NO. Was there something hidden in the bill that would not benefit the public?
