Tues 10/08/13 Noon & 7PM   A few weeks ago, a contingent of Vermont business people, Governor Peter Shumlin and Commerce Secretary Lawrence Miller traveled to China to meet with potential EB-5 visa investors for the Northeast Kingdom Economic Development Initiative.

Secretary Miller updates us on the results of that trip and discusses the strength of the state’s economy, areas of potential business growth and the unemployment numbers.

Also on the program, we'll find out about the third annual HackVT, a 24 hour competition for programmers to create apps or websites useful to Vermont.

Plus, a new Vermont website provides information for disabled individuals regarding the accessibility of businesses. Peter Kriff, Executive Director of the Vermont Statewide Independent Living Council, discusses the site his group created, called Accessible Adventures.
