The Attorney General’s office is wrangling with a number of key issues right now, including GMO labeling legislation and the Vermont Yankee decommissioning plans and fund.

Attorney General Bill Sorrell will discuss these issues as well as campaign financing, patent trolling and recent law enforcement officer-involved shootings.

Also on the program, Northeast Kingdom poet Leland Kinsey discusses his seventh and newest book of poetry, Winter Ready.

Broadcast live on Thursday, April 10 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.

One year after the fight of his political life, Attorney General Bill Sorrell announced this week that he’ll run for reelection again in 2014. Vermont’s longest-serving Attorney General, Sorrell was appointed by then-Governor Howard Dean in 1997.

For more than a decade, Sorrell was easily reelected every two years ­– until 2012. Last year, Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan mounted an aggressive primary campaign against Sorrell. Sorrell ultimately won, but by a slim 714-vote margin.
