The Vermont Legislature
Vermont’s State House houses a unique citizen legislature where anyone can serve and in that process make a difference.
The Legislature is comprised of 150 Representatives in the House chamber and 30 Senators in the Senate chamber. Together these two legislative bodies make decisions on a wide range of issues that affect our health, economy, and way of life.
The Vermont Legislature meets each Tuesday through Friday during the legislative session, which runs from early January through late April. The adjournment date varies from year to year, but in general the Legislature tries to complete its work in sixteen or seventeen weeks.
