Legislative Update: economic development a priority

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Fred Baser



We are in the final weeks of the Legislative session. I fear if we need to extend the session it will be the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee’s doing, as the 150-page Senate bill (S.138) that we received in our committee a few weeks ago has just left our committee with many changes and additions.

Editorial: New Haven's push on solar policy points to a better way to advance industry's growth

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The passion that drives the renewable energy movement can be, ironically, its own worst enemy.

A few years ago champions of wind energy found themselves in a heated battle with the citizens and towns in the Northeast Kingdom. Wind advocates, so sure of their pure intent, failed to understand the aesthetic damage and the community opposition. After two projects were built, the opposition against more projects was so great that Gov. James Douglas withdrew his support and wind development flat-lined.

Guest editorial: School consolidation plan less effective if it is voluntary

Posted on April 20, 2015 |
By Emerson Lynn



If the education reform bill passed by the House is what is eventually approved by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor, Vermont will have made some significant progress in the march toward a more efficient, less costly education system. It will also put us in the position of being able to use our resources to improve educational outcomes.

Guest editorial: Vt. patent law needs to go national

Posted on April 16, 2015 |
By Paul Ralston



Vermont is a creative, innovative place with a strong history of entrepreneurial initiative. Despite difficult economic news, many Vermont businesses are growing and reaching out to new markets. Unfortunately, as our Vermont entrepreneurs gain wider recognition in the marketplace, they are increasingly becoming targets of a very insidious, very un-American threat: bad faith assertions of patent infringement — commonly known as “patent trolls.”

By Joe Fusco



This week’s writer is Joe Fusco, a vice president of Casella Waste Systems, Inc. He is also a member of the board of advisers for the University of Vermont’s MBA program in Sustainable Entrepreneurship (SEMBA).

Editorial: Reflections on ID-4 changes

Posted on April 13, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Credit the change in voting on the ID-4 (Middlebury Elementary School) budget to a dedicated group of citizens who took up the long-standing issue about a year ago and pressed ahead with a steadfast campaign to bring it to a public vote.

Editorial: Senate can tweak H.361, but must keep ball rolling

Posted on April 9, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As the Senate takes up the House passed education bill, H.361, the goal in the legislation is to take small steps toward progress, allow for local control and not threaten schools or communities with repercussions that cause undue hardship. The legislation does this, ironically, by being purposely imprecise. But it’s that imprecision that critics have attacked.

Editorial: Indiana's hasty retreat

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The irony in Indiana’s hasty retreat from its recently passed “religious freedom” law is that it was largely led by Republican businessmen, Chamber of Commerce leaders and legislators who realized the bigotry of the law would be damaging to the state’s bottom line.
