Vermont Senate approves impeachment resolution
Friday, 20 April 2007 21:30
MONTPELIER -- The Vermont Senate voted 16-9 this morning to urge the state's congressional delegation to initiate impeachment proceedings against President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

The vote came quietly in the Senate chamber, with no impeachment supporters in the room and no debate. The senate resolution was introduced by Sens. Peter Shumlin and Jeanette White, two Windham County Democrats.

Impeachment supporters have lobbied legislators to take up the matter, and this week were back in Montpelier to press legislative leaders. Shumlin and Speaker of the House Gaye Symington have told supporters there was no time for full legislative debate and action in the issue in this session, but reminded them that a single legislator could raise the issue at anytime.
