Douglas To Focus On Money In State Of The State Address

Print More

Governor Jim Douglas says he’ll be talking about the state’s fiscal troubles in his last State of the State address.

Specifics on how he plans to solve Vermont’s estimated $150 million budget shortfall are expected to await release of the governor’s budget proposal later this month.

But when he addresses a joint session of the Legislature at 2:00 today, Douglas is expected to speak broadly of a need to tighten the state’s belt.

It will be Douglas’ final State of the State address. The four-term governor has decided not to seek re-election in 2010.

And you can listen to the State of the State address live here on VPR at 2:00 p.m.
