Vermont’s House majority leader reviews the 2017 legislative session

  1. The idea no increase in State expenditures occurred in Montpelier is a lie. Tax expenditures–deductions from the income tax, tax credits of all types, tax free interest on State/municipal bonds–all are expenditures just like money appropriated for housing prisoners or funding the Legislature itself. The Legislature needs a budget before them needs to include projections of tax expenditures which lays out the entire State outlays for the coming biennium.

  2. Ms. Krowinski left out an important objective on her bucket list for this past legislative session. Like all of her Democrat/Progressive associates, no thought was given to approaching the upcoming fiscal year when the state spends not one dime more than it takes in requiring new taxes or fees. Will NEVER happen!
