Pat Leahy hijacks Judiciary to promote Vermont business

On March 7, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be traveling to Colchester, Vermont for a special hearing entitled “Strategies to Protect and Promote Vermont Brands.”

How does this state-level business marketing question fall under the jurisdiction of the national-level Judiciary Committee? Will judges be tasked with the milking of cows or the tapping of maple trees?

Of course not. The reason this topic falls under the consideration of the Senate Judiciary Committee is that its chairman says it does. His name: Patrick Leahy… of Vermont.
