The new Legislature convenes Wednesday with new leadership in Senate and a new governor a bout to be sworn in. VPR's Bob Kinzel gives an overview of what citizens and observers can expect from lawmakers this winter. And we talk with two long-serving senators, Republican Kevin Mullin and Democrat John Campbell, who will serve as President Pro Tempore of the Senate. We'll also talk with Speaker of the House, Shap Smith. Join us for a full hour of legislative coverage when Vermont Edition broadcasts live at the Statehouse in Montpelier.
