Allbee Commentary: This is a bold initiative


ST. ALBANS — Two Franklin County legislators from opposite sides of the political aisle have joined forces in a bid to improve the development of agricultural and forestry products and businesses in Vermont. Funding for infrastructure development, support for businesses, and conservation of Vermont's forests are all part of a working landscapes bill introduced in the legislature last week. The bill proposes initial funding of $3 million, with plans to increase funding to $15 million annually in the future.
