MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont students, academic leaders, business people, legal professionals and lawmakers are brainstorming at the Statehouse this weekend to come up with technology and economic development proposals.

The so-called “Legithon” started Friday and runs through Sunday.

Participants are forming workgroups to create proposals that will be presented on Sunday.

House Speaker and gubernatorial candidate Shap Smith, who is co-hosting the conference, says Vermonters are smart, resourceful people who want to work together to shape the state’s future. He says the Legithon is an exciting opportunity “to unite Vermont’s brightest minds for a common purpose.”

The event is facilitated by the Gruter Institute for Law and Behavioral Research and Vermont Law School along with legislators and stakeholders.
