PRS Students Testify Before VT House Committee on Natural Resources and Energy

On Thursday, February 16, 2012, three Dartmouth students, Li-Ning Yang ’15, Chinedu Udeh ’12, and Andrew Clay ’12, from the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center Policy Research Shop, traveled to the Vermont House of Representatives in Montpelier to testify before the House Committee on Natural Resources and Energy at the request of Chairman Tony Klein. The PRS team testified on policy options for establishing an Office of Ombudsman in the State of Vermont. The students presented case studies of statewide Ombudsman offices currently found in five states and implementation options available for Vermont to consider. Following a twenty-minute presentation, the students responded to questions and comments from members of the committee. The team also enjoyed a visit to the House and Senate chambers in the state capitol building with Chairman Klein.
