From Rep. Mook's website
Dear Friends and Constituents: As a result of Tropical Storm Irene last August, much of the Legislature’s work was impacted by that event. We automatically think of Transportation for the roads and bridges of Vermont, but also impacted were the committees on Human Services [Vermont State Hospital], Institutions [our state buildings], Fish & Wildlife & Water, Housing, Agriculture, Commerce, Ways & Means (taxes), Education, Appropriations, and Commerce. As a state, we have helped each other, rebounded well, faced enormous decisions, and entered into long-term planning and recovery. As I make my weekly trip to Montpelier, I am well aware of Irene’s destruction to the roads and bridges of routes 100 and 107, to the debris left along the rivers, to the destroyed homes in Pittsfield and empty building lots I pass along the way.
The House has been super busy. I share the following about some of the work we have done so far. Thank you all for your continued support so that I may continue the work I enjoy so much.
