Under the Golden Dome:

The Stories Behind Vermont’s Citizen Legislature

The Snelling Center for Government commissioned the Vermont Folklife Center to interview 35 former legislators. The result is a ten-part radio series which allows a rare, very human view of the Legislature and its workings over the last fifty years. As with any commentary and observations over time, change has been a constant. Yet Vermont’s State House still houses a unique citizen legislature where anyone can serve and in that process make a difference.
