MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - One of the longest-serving members of the Vermont House of Representatives is not seeking re-election this fall.

Democrat David Deen of Westminster, who will complete his 13th term this session, is the second-longest serving member of the House.

Vermont Public Radio reports that Deen served as chairman of the Fish, Wildlife and Water Resources Committee for 14 years and helped write legislation affecting stormwater runoff, municipal water planning, solid waste and stormwater rules. He also worked on stream protection laws after 2011’s Tropical Storm Irene.

Deen says he’s proud that his fingerprints are on most of the water protection chapters in Vermont law.

Deen, a professional fly fishing guide, says he hopes to travel to Alaska and Montana after he leaves the Legislature.
