Contact Your Legislator
Legislative actions often move quickly. The Vermont Lodging Association’s lobbying firm, Downs Rachlin Martin (DRM), is engaged in up-to-the minute activities of the Vermont Legislature. We are committed to keeping you up to date with the latest issues that impact lodging and are aggressively fighting on your behalf. Sometimes, however, there is nothing more powerful than a personal phone call or email — neighbor to neighbor — from you to the legislators who represents you.

From time to time special committees deal with issues that are of special importance to our lodging. Special committee members and their contact information will be posted here.
