Democratic Governors Association

Montana Governor Steve Bullock was elected chairman of the Democratic Governors Association at its annual meeting in Los Angeles Tuesday succeeding Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.


Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin says he'll travel to Florida next week to listen to the F-35 fighter jet and then go to Italy to give a speech and take some vacation time.

The governor says he heard during this year's campaign from some voters concerned that if the Air Force goes ahead with plans to base F-35s at the Burlington Airport, noise from the planes will plague surrounding residential areas.
