Senate To Take Up Campaign Finance

The Vermont Senate is set to take another crack at changes to Vermont's campaign finance law, as the 2013 legislative session nears adjournment.

House Speaker Shap Smith told lawmakers Thursday evening to expect long days Friday and Saturday, with hopes still alive for adjournment for the year late Saturday.

Smith says the must-do tax and spending bills for the next fiscal year are coming together and could be wrapped up by midday Friday.

Several bills still need to have differences worked out between House and Senate versions if they're to become law this year. Among them are campaign finance reform, marijuana decriminalization, and a measure allowing terminally ill patients to ask their doctors for lethal drugs.
