Our Newsletter, Citizens' Guide, League-L-ese
The Citizen's Guide has been used as an educational tool in many Vermont schools for government/civics classes since it was first printed in 1965. The 100-page book provided a comprehensive examination of all aspects of local, county, and state government and describes in detail the officers, departments and functions of each. The Guide delves into the roles of the state executive, legislative, and judicial branches and explains the process by which individual bills become laws.
Touching on historical and geographical background that helped form the settlement of the state and its Constitution, the Vermont Constitution is included in its entirety. Also included are sections on voting and the responsibilities of citizenship.
