What’s up for next year?

There will likely be a wide variety of issues before the 2018 legislature and Governor. If you have thoughts on proposed legislation or have ideas to move Vermont forward, please email me at jharrison@leg.state.vt.us.
Some of the higher profile issues are likely to include:

  • State budget adjustments if federal funding is reduced
  • Paid family leave benefit for employees up to six weeks funded by a new payroll tax on employees
  • Minimum wage increase to $15 per hour
  • Carbon tax (at least four different proposals introduced)
  • Regulating marijuana if the current bill, S.22, becomes law this year
  • Clarification of who independent contractors are for workers compensation coverage
  • Act 250 revisions
  • Clean water funding
