It is clear that the lightning rod legislation of 2000, civil unions, can not be repealed, and any significant reversal would incur a veto by Gov. Howard Dean.

A strong charter school law, a serious toughening of the Department's flabby education standards, teacher testing, and educational freedom districts ought to be high on the agenda.

An unintended consequence of the Canadian NHP regulations may be the exit of smaller firms, leading to industry consolidation.
