This ain’t over, Scott signals after House veto of GWSA - Vermont Daily

The Vermont Constitution requires the separation of Legislative and Executive Powers - and the Global Warming Solutions Act orders the executive branch to abdicate some of its constitutional powers. Expect a court challenge, Gov. Phil Scott said last week.

“Think about that – there would be 23 members, one third appointed by the governor and the other two thirds appointed by the legislature, and they would have the power to make laws. The Legislature, the elected representatives of the people, would not have to vote on it. The governor – not just me, any future governor – the person elected by Vermonters to provide executive oversight and administration, would not get to review it or decide whether to sign it or veto it."
