  • New Firefighter Training Facility at Vermont Tech

    Participating in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new firefighter training building at Vermont Technical College, Sen. Bernie Sanders called the facility a major step forward in assuring high-quality training for firefighters across the state. Sanders secured $406,962 for the project, which includes a specialized structure called a live-burn building. Many of these pictures came courtesy of Vermont Technical College.
  • Vermonters Biking for a Cause

    Senator Sanders met with Brita Climate Riders Karen Sentoff and Emily Berry, from Burlington, Vt., who rode their bikes from New York City to Washington, D.C. to raise funds and awareness about the need to address global warming.
  • Global Warming Bill Introduced

    Sens. Sanders, Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), John Kerry (D-Mass.) and eight supporters kicked off the global warming debate in the Senate with a rally releasing their comprehensive climate bill. The Boxer-Kerry bill sets a 20 percent emission reduction target by 2020, over 2005 levels. The legislation also retains the Environmental Protection Agency's authority under the Clean Air Act to clean up the oldest and dirtiest power plants.
  • Helping Seniors

    Sen. Sanders hosted a Capitol Hill press conference at which he and Rep. Peter DeFazio welcomed more than 120,000 signatures from seniors supporting their bill to provide a one-time, $250 payment next year to more than 50 million seniors so Social Security benefits do not shrink. Unless Congress acts, benefits will drop for the first time in decades because there will be no cost-of-living adjustment while Medicare prescription drug premiums, which are deducted from Social Security, will go up. The petition was collected by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare who brought with them to the event Esther Lenett, 91, a Social Security recipient from Bethesda, Md.
