Legislators in the Vermont House took a few minutes before the start of the campaign finance reform veto debate Wednesday to approve a resolution congratulating Springfield, Vt. for officially becoming the "home" of the cartoon Simpsons family.
In case you missed it, yesterday the Windsor County town of 9,000 shocked EVERYONE by winning the right to premiere The Simpsons movie on July 21.
The House’s resolution Wednesday was short in length but heavy with pride. Earlier this morning, one state senator quipped that he wanted to recognize Vermont’s newest yellow family, The Simpsons. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Senate tackles its own Springfield resolution soon.
P.S. The House sustained Gov. James Douglas’ veto of the energy bill shortly after noontime. But I assumed everyone out there already knew that.
