Hoff governor of Vermont written for up Montpelier up a there is no question but that the actions of the 1965 Vermont general Assembly Mark the beginning of a new Era in our history As a state. Despite the trauma of breaking with tradition the Assembly did re apportion itself to meet the principle of one Man one vote. In doing so the legislature Cut the size of the House from 246 to 150 members. This signals a More Liberal Outlook in future Legislatures and a More efficient operation in the lower chamber. We Are going to the courts to ask them to Complete the Job of setting up machinery for a special election this fall. This was adopted by both houses but final action was stalled by a Small minority of lawmakers representing Only a fraction of Vermont a population. I am confident that reapportionment will prevent any future example of minority domination in our general Assembly. The fact of reapportionment alone is a major accomplishment. But the Assembly went a Long Way beyond in moving Vermont Forward in several areas of Public Endeavor. Significant Progress was made in education in conservation of our natural resources in development and welfare legislation. I believe that this was one of the most productive sessions in the history of our state. We increased state Aid to education by some four million dollars. Minimum salaries for our teachers were increased. Editors note a Vermont gov. Philip h. Hoff has sized up the actions of the 1965 legislative session As the a beginning of a new Era for the state. Here is his report. Bills were passed to broaden our program of free education to All Vermont Young people. This was accomplished by positive action toward the Region ligation of our administrative units of government. The Best examples of this were approval of Ald plans for regional planning and development groups. A step was made toward District courts and increased Aid to listers on a More or less regional basis. In education again there was a major breakthrough when the Assembly earmarked the general fund operating surplus for Aid to regional vocational training centers. Passage of the $1.25 minimum wage is a Long needed Protection for a wide segment of our population. Wage and salary increases for state personnel also make us More competitive. Creation of the legislative Council will strengthen the ability of the Assembly to meet current problems. Creation of the Vermont student assistance corp. Will strengthen the program of senatorial scholarships and guaranteed student Loans. We did however fail in efforts to begin the medium Security institution to replace the obsolete state prison at Windsor. The labor relations Bill and the Vermont general authority Are two other Bills that will be brought up at the special session i plan to Call next january. When All is tabulated i think that vermonters will be amazed at this sessions record of solid accomplishment. I am grateful that the legislators accepted the Challenge posed by our increasingly Complex society and acted boldly to meet Many major problems.
