Governor Phil Scott Reaffirms Commitment to Ensuring Vermonters Don’t See Higher Taxes and Fees This Year
Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott today sent a letter to the Legislature to work with his Administration in focusing on pro-growth policies, while ensuring Vermonters are not asked to pay more in taxes and fees.
This letter reaffirms the commitment Scott made to prevent new state taxes and fees for the second straight year. Scott highlights more than a dozen existing bills that currently include new or higher taxes and fees and reiterates his opposition for those increases.
“Aside from these new or higher taxes and fees, many of these bills contain provisions I could support,” Scott said in the letter. “Let’s work together to find ways to advance some of these proposals, while ensuring Vermonters can keep more of what they earn again this year.”
