Vermont Legislative Issues

The Vermont General Assembly is the state legislature of Vermont. The Legislature is formally known as the “General Assembly,” but the title of “Legislature” is commonly used, including by the body itself. The Legislature is a bicameral assembly, consisting of the 150-member Vermont House of Representatives and the 30-member Vermont State Senate.

Members of the House are elected by single and two-member districts. 66 districts choose one member, and 42 choose two, with the term of service being two years. The Senate includes 30 Senators, elected by 13 multi-member districts.

A complete list of legislators, their Committees and Calendar of activities and public hearings can be found at the Vermont Legislative website.

In 2021, the Legislature is expected to focus on COVID-19 and related issues. You can follow the introduction of bills here.
