Six years ago, Peter Shumlin became the new governor of Vermont. His three-term tenure was marked by natural disaster and major policy debates over health care and energy. We look back on Shumlin's time in the governor's office in a live, hour-long interview.
The focus of Shumlin's first two-year term was radically altered by Tropical Storm Irene and its devastating aftermath. But Shumlin still pursued major policy initiatives like single-payer health care, and the creation of a state health care exchange that was plagued with technical problems. The Shumlin years also saw a major expansion of renewable energy and put a spotlight on the opiate crisis.
On the next Vermont Edition, Gov. Peter Shumlin sits down with us for a final look back on his time in office.
