    The only Vermont State Police trooper serving in the state Legislature has resigned from his law enforcement position.

    Democratic Rep. Nader Hashim of Dummerston tells the Brattleboro Reformer he resigned after he was denied a residency waiver so he could remain living in Dummerston, in his legislative district, while working in another part of the state.

    After being elected to the Legislature last November, the 30-year-old Hashim started working in the Royalton area to avoid convicts of interest with his legislative constituents.

    He had asked for a waiver of a state police requirement that troopers live near where they work, but the waiver was denied.
