§

4131. Purpose and findings

The Legislature

hereby finds and declares: that adequate supplies of fuel are essential to the

health, welfare, and safety of the people of the State of Vermont; that any

severe disruption in fuel supplied for use within the State would cause grave

hardship and pose a threat to the health and economic well-being of the people

of the State; that such interruptions should be responded to by reliance to the

greatest extent practicable on the free market system; and that temporary and

concurrent State authority for a fuel set-aside program should be in place as

the federal government terminates, suspends or fails to implement all or part

of the federal program. (Added 1981, No. 162 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. April 15,

1982.)
