Vermont - incomplete data regarding Bills from current session (2015-2016)

Description

I've run into some issues where OpenStates isn't showing updated data pertaining to Bills from Vermont's current 2015-2016 session. This is true in multiple instances. My web application depends on your data which is why I've marked the issue critical.

If I search OpenStates for S.241, you do show the Bill exists and who its sponsors are (though the legislators' images are blank on this page):
http://openstates.org/vt/bills/2015-2016/S241/

On their profile pages the legislator's images display fine:
http://openstates.org/vt/legislators/VTL000030/jeanette-k-white/
http://openstates.org/vt/legislators/VTL000181/joe-c-benning/

If I click on the S.241, you're incorrectly showing the last action taken was on Jan. 5.
http://openstates.org/vt/bills/2015-2016/S241/

VT's official legislative website shows the last actions taken on S.241 were on Feb. 2.
http://legislature.vermont.gov/bill/status/2016/S.241

When I go to the profile pages for the legislators who've sponsored S.241, and scroll down to their 'Sponsored Bills' section, it shows only data from the last session (2013-2014). You are showing current data for the other sections on the legislator's pages, ie. Media, Committee Membership and Recent Votes - just not for Sponsored Bills.
http://openstates.org/vt/legislators/VTL000181/joe-c-benning/

If I go to the Bill search page, and filter for the sponsoring legislator's names and for the current (2015-2016) session, it shows no data available (on S.241 or otherwise).
http://openstates.org/vt/bills/?search_text=&session=2015-2016&sponsor__leg_id=VTL000181&type=
http://openstates.org/vt/bills/?search_text=&session=2015-2016&sponsor__leg_id=VTL000030&type=

Please let me know if you need more info from me or if there's something else I can do to help in the meantime.

Thanks for all your hard work keeping OpenStates up and running!
