Working Lands Enterprise Investment Bill

Last Tuesday, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed into law the Working Lands Enterprise Investment bill (H.496). At the signing, Governor Shumlin noted that this initiative is the first new program in government of significance since the great recession began. “This is a big day…The renaissance in agriculture is happening right here in Vermont…Vermont’s best agriculture and forest products days are ahead of us. This bill is a testament to our future.” The Working Lands Enterprise Fund will start off with a million dollars to invest in our working lands enterprises.
