Legislature begins 2013 session this week

Posted: Updated:

Vermont lawmakers are preparing to gather for the start of their 2013 session this week.

It's a session expected to touch some major hot button issues, including physician-assisted death and the decriminalization of marijuana. Lawmakers also have to address a projected shortfall of $50-70 million in the 2014 budget.

Wednesday, the House and Senate will meet to elect their top officers -- and activists announced they're holding a rally at the statehouse that day to push an agenda with items such as affordable heath care and environmental concerns.
