Eric Davis: Health care decision no surprise

Posted on December 23, 2014 |
By Eric L. Davis



Gov. Shumlin announced last Wednesday that “it is not the right time” to introduce a single-payer health care system in Vermont. He said he would not propose such a plan to the Legislature in 2015.

A version of a financing plan for single-payer that was leaked to the press earlier this month received a strongly negative reaction, so the governor’s decision to abandon further action is not a surprise.

Guest editorial: 45-cent gas tax? That's nuts

Posted on November 24, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



If several Vermont environmental groups and key policy makers have their way, the Legislature will impose a tax on gasoline and heating fuels, raising the price of a gallon of gas an estimated 45 cents. This will be Vermont’s way to help cut greenhouse gas emissions.

They are delusional.

City council waits to talk about a local option tax

Posted on November 6, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At their Oct. 28 meeting Vergennes City Council members were first faced with an agenda item on a possible local option tax in the city. One option, for example, would be to add a penny to the state sales tax to items sold within city limits.

But Mayor Bill Benton said the time was not right for the discussion. He said he was out of town when it was placed on the agenda, and he removed it when he returned because not enough research has been done to show whether such a tax could have a positive impact.

Opinion: Milne has right vision for state

Posted on September 3, 2014 |
By Manchester Center



As a young adult living in Vermont, I feel so privileged to reside in a state filled with natural beauty, rich history, and kind-hearted people. However, like many young Vermonters, I’m at a crossroads over where I plan to live as I approach the next stage in my life. The direction of our state government is an important factor in my decision, as it is for many other young Vermont residents. I want to live in a state with economic security, employment opportunities and a quality education system.

Guest editorial: Why would we cut tax credits for job creation?

Posted on August 22, 2014 |
By Emerson Lynn



Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the tax credit allowed Vermont businesses for research and development was cut from 30 percent to 27 percent of the federal credit. The legislation signaling this reduction was signed into law last month, the same month the state went into a tailspin about the future of IBM and its 4,000 jobs.

Included in the legislation is also the requirement that the state tax department publish the names of all those who avail themselves of the reduced tax credit.

By Brian Fillioe



Wow, with all that Brandon has to worry about, such as almost $1 million in delinquent taxes, a budget going up for vote for try number five, some people are apparently obsessed with Richard Baker. Mr. Baker’s name was on the recently published list of delinquent taxpayers and is a former selectman and interim town manager.

By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — Most property owners in the five-town area are seeing higher tax bills than last year.

Selectboards in Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven and Starksboro set municipal tax rates in the past month or so to pay for town staffing obligations and highway spending.

Town leaders have also received final homestead and non-residential school tax rates from the state, allowing towns to send out 2014-2015 tax bills. Each of the five towns are served by the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union.
