Rep. Poirier (I-Barre) Introduces Amendment To Postpone Challenges For Change

Q. Why do you think [Challenges] happened so fast?

Poirier: I think for two reasons: Gov. Douglas is accomplishing what he’s wanted to do for years, which is cut programs and cut the workforce. No. 2, it’s an election year and we have so many people running for governor or lieutenant governor that everybody wants to look like a fiscal conservative. That doesn’t help the men and women and children who are going to be hurt by this.

Rep. Anne Donahue (R-Northfield) on Challenges For Change:

"Never in my time here have I seen remotely close to the level of usurpation of the legislative process through joint actions of the administration and legislative leadership. It is an evisceration of a representative democracy."
