A Vermont lawmaker whose district would be affected by the possible basing of a new fighter jet in the Burlington area is proposing a legislative resolution opposing it. Representative George Cross is a Democrat representing Winooski, a small city in the flight path of Burlington International Airport where the F-35 fighter jet would be based. Cross said that his resolution has 30 cosponsors and that he hopes to get more support from lawmakers around Vermont. Those who support basing the F-35 with the Vermont Air National Guard said it would be an economic growth engine for northwestern Vermont.
