VPR’s Jane Lindholm talks with Steve Jeffrey of the Vermont League of Cities and Towns, and lawyer Bob Gensburg, who argued the historic Brigham case marking a major shift in the way Vermont pays for public schools.
The House Ways
and Means Committee is backing a bill that would dramatically change how Vermonters
pay for education.
The residential property tax for education would be
eliminated and replaced with a new income tax surcharge.
As VPR’s Bob Kinzel reports, the legislation faces
some major hurdles.
