Message from Governor

A message was received from His Excellency, the Governor, by Ms. Dennise Casey, Secretary of Civil and Military Affairs, as follows:

Madam Speaker:

I am directed by the Governor to inform the House that on the tenth day of April, 2008, he approved and signed a bill originating in the House of the following title:

H. 563    An act relating to the Uniform Commercial Code

Bill Referred to Committee on Appropriations

Appearing on the Calendar, carrying an appropriation, under rule 35a, was referred to the committee on Appropriations.

Joint Resolution Referred to Committee

J.R.H. 59

Reps. Gilbert of Fairfax, Ancel of Calais, Anderson of Montpelier, Andrews of Rutland City, Atkins of Winooski, Barnard of Richmond, Bissonnette of Winooski, Branagan of Georgia, Bray of New Haven, Clark of Vergennes, Clerkin of Hartford, Consejo of Sheldon, Crawford of Burke, Donovan of Burlington, Fitzgerald of St. Albans City, Gervais of Enosburg, Godin of Milton, Haas of Rochester, Hosford of Waitsfield, Howrigan of Fairfield, Johnson of South Hero, Lenes of Shelburne, Manwaring of Wilmington, Marek of Newfane, Martin of Springfield, McDonald of Berlin, Mitchell of Barnard, Mook of Bennington, Mrowicki of Putney, Ojibway of Hartford, Pearson of Burlington, Peltz of Woodbury, Perry of Richford, Potter of Clarendon, Spengler of Colchester, Stevens of Shoreham, Wheeler of Derby and Winters of Williamstown offered a joint resolution, entitled

Joint resolution urging secondary school and postsecondary educators and administrators to collaborate on accelerated learning opportunities for Vermont high school students;

Whereas, in today’s global economy, knowledge is power, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has estimated that the majority of the fastest‑growing and highest‑paying occupations between now and 2014 will require postsecondary educational preparation, and

Whereas, research has shown that postsecondary success is predicated on rigorous academic preparation in high school and on students’ clear understanding of colleges’ and universities’ expectations of them once enrolled, and

Whereas, although more students enter college today than in 1988, the proportion of students graduating has declined, and the overall academic attrition results in fewer than 20 percent of 9th graders graduating with a college degree by the age of 24, and

Whereas, the United States cannot afford the loss of human capital on this scale and remain globally competitive, and

Whereas, programs providing for students to be enrolled simultaneously in high school and college courses enable students to experience the rigors of college studies while earning both high school and college credits, and

Whereas, according to the U.S. Department of Education, students participating in dual enrollment programs complete their college degrees more quickly and have higher graduation rates, and

Whereas, as of January 2006, over 40 states had policies related to dual enrollment, and in Vermont, there are currently agreements related to postsecondary technical education, and

Whereas, dual enrollment policies led to a nearly 1,000 percent increase in Minnesota high school students taking advanced placement tests, and a coordinated k-college education initiative in Georgia raised the percentage of high school students studying a rigorous core curriculum, and postremediation levels fell precipitously, and

Whereas, Vermont has recognized the value of accelerated learning, and the state’s high schools have experienced the highest percentage increase in the nation of advanced placement tests taken, the number of students taking the exams, and the number of students earning a score of at least 3 on a grading scale in which the highest grade is 5, and

Whereas, the Vermont State Colleges have multiple dual enrollment programs, and the UVM administration is publicly committed to the university’s participation in a council of both pre-k-12 and postsecondary educators to inform and move forward pre-K-12 and postsecondary education as a continuum, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly applauds the existing dual enrollment programs in Vermont and encourages future efforts to expand the availability of postsecondary educational offerings for high school students, and be it further

Resolved:  That the secretary of state be directed to send a copy of this resolution to the commissioner of education, to the president of each public and private institution of higher education in Vermont, and to the chancellor of the Vermont State Colleges.

Which was read and, in the Speaker’s discretion, treated as a bill and referred to the committee on Education.

Remarks Journalized

On motion of Rep. Martin of Wolcott, the following remarks by Rep. Moran of Wardsboro were ordered printed in the Journal:

“Madam Speaker:

   It is with deep sadness that I stand before you this morning.

   In Wardsboro, over this last weekend, in a terrible accident, we lost three of our own.

   Nicole Tarnay Waring, a loving mother, gifted artist, and environmental advocate; and her precious daughters, six year-old Dakota; and two-and-a-half year-old Grace.

   I ask that we keep in our prayers Michael Waring, devoted husband and dedicated father, who on Saturday lost his family.

   Keep in our prayers my family's next door neighbors, Hannes and Chris Tarnay, parents of Nicole and grandparents of Dakota and Grace.

   Keep in our prayers, Linda Brady and Dr. Gary Waring, parents of Michael, and grandparents of Dakota and Grace.

   Keep in our prayers Michael's brother, Elliot and sister, Avi, and all the family and friends who were cut so deeply by this tragedy over the past weekend.

   And keep in our prayers all who we involved in the efforts at rescue and recovery.

   But foremost, keep in our prayers Nicole, Dakota and Grace, who will be in our memories for a long, long time and in our hearts forever.”
