Political analyst Eric Davis, Secretary Neale Lunderville and Senator Susan Bartlett join VPR’s Jane Lindholm to discuss the ramifications of yesterday’s override of Governor Jim Douglas’s budget veto.
This week nearly $20 million in budget cuts were proposed by the
Douglas administration and the Joint Fiscal Committee, but they say
that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Administration Secretary Neale
Lunderville discusses the constantly shifting budget
situation. Also on the program, how town
budgets are taking a hit, and a new movie captures the spirit of Brattleboro’s Harmony Parking Lot.
Bernie Sanders wants the federal government to crack down on lending companies;
fuel prices are rising while oil companies earn record profits; Vermont’s top transportation official says he’s willing to
consider new ways of raising money to pay for road and bridge repair.
