Guest: Seventh Generation participate in a climate protest outside of Burlington City Hall
Guests: Sen. Kesha Ram Hinsdale, Kristin Warner, Kate Ogden, Sen. Tanya Vyhovsky

On this week’s episode of the Democracy Dispatch Podcast, I’m joined by Senator Kesha Ram Hinsdale (D-Chittenden SE), chair of the Senate Committee on Economic Development, Housing, and General Affairs and Kristin Warner, Public Policy Manager at Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility. We will be discussing the roles of businesses in shaping policy, how businesses band together to take a stand on climate protections, and the apprehension some feel about getting political in the first place. To assist us in that conversation is Kate Ogden, the Advocacy and Movement Building Manager at Seventh Generation.

Also on the podcast, we take a deeper look at S.259, the Climate Superfund Act also known as Make Big Oil Pay with Senator Tanya Vyhovsky (P-Chittenden Central). She outlines the importance of the bill and celebrates its unanimous, tripartisan vote out of the Senate Committee on Judiciary.

And finally, listen in for a breakdown look at the League of Conservation Voters’ national scorecard to see how our federal delegation stacks up and their voting records on environmental policies in Washington D.C.
