Class Notes Joseph C. Benning 7/24/2015  
Joe Benning says, "I was elected to the Vermont State Senate in 2010 from the Caledonia- Orange District. Since then I have served on two standing committees: Institutions, and Natural Resources and Energy. In Institutions, we are wrestling with what to do about the Waterbury State Office Complex in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene. Part of that discussion has been a redesign of our state's mental health system after the Waterbury State Hospital had to be closed down. Solutions are quite complex and very expensive. In Natural Resources, I have met countless VLS graduates. They are all flexing their legal muscles in lobbying for many different bills. It is truly a testament to the law school's immersion in state government. I'm also assigned to several ad hoc committees, including Judicial Retention. It is a sobering experience, as a trial lawyer in my normal job, to be deciding on the continued employment fate of experienced judges. Should any mem- bers of the Class of '83 find themselves in the statehouse during the session, feel free to seek me out for a personal tour. Just tell a page you are looking for me."
