> new law once we digest its many pages.
> The very good news is that the bill provides funding for the changes
> it mandates. We feel optimistic that the funding will likely meet our
> minimum requirements because the bill includes important
> language championed by Senators Leahy and Jeffords that ensures
> that every state receives an adequate minimum level of funding to
> achieve the required reforms.
> We will be putting together a committee to help us plan for
> implementation of the law in Vermont. If you wish to participate in
