This Vermont newspaper provides the Governor's statement, which has not (yet?) been posted among press releases at the Governor's website. The Governor said this about his intended veto:

"I’m sure that legislative leaders would not have advanced this bill if they did not have the votes to override a veto. I will accept the outcome of their vote either way."
