Secretary of Administration Jeb Spaulding met Thursday with representatives from the Vermont Air Guard, South Burlington, Winooski, Burlington and Williston. The meeting was closed to the public.
Spaulding told Vermont Public Radio that Shumlin supports the plan, but he wants to be sure the state and communities are doing everything they can to get answers to environmental concerns.
Spaulding said there was discussion about having a website addressing frequently asked questions. There also was talk about bringing up one of the jets or sending a delegation from Vermont to compare the noise of the F-35s to the older F-16 jets.
