According to the Vermont Attorney General’s Office, buyers of meat from Gregory Finch’s Vermont’s Family Farm in Enosburgh thought they were buying anti-biotic free Vermont pork, and consumers paid a premium price for it. But Finch cannot prove his pigs were born and raised in Vermont or were anti-biotic free for their entire lives – and the Attorney General’s evidence indicates otherwise. So Finch, who is no longer farming or living in Vermont, and the Attorney General have settled for a civil penalty of over $140,000. “Vermonters are willing to pay extra for meat raised in Vermont. We won’t let their money pad the pockets of those making fake claims,” said Attorney General Bill Sorrell. Continue reading “ENOSBURGH FARMER SOLD OUT OF STATE MEAT AS “VERMONT GROWN””

St. Albans: The Green Mountain Care Board will allow prices at hospitals to go up an average of 1.8 percent in the upcoming fiscal year, but will hold Northwestern Medical Center’s rates alone.
The board, which regulates hospitals’ budgets and insurance prices, finished approving the prices for Vermont’s 14 hospitals Thursday. The board’s accountants are still calculating how much revenue those new prices will take in.
The results leave $2.4 billion in hospital budgets largely unchanged. Even though numerous hospitals took in more money for care than they were supposed to in 2015 or are expected to do so in 2016, none will be forced to decrease how much they charge insurance companies starting Oct. 1.
