Vermont Legislature Hopes To Pass First Quarter Budget
The Vermont Legislature hopes to give final approval this week to a state budget for the first quarter of the fiscal year that begins July 1.
Legislators also hope to allocate around $1 billion in federal money designed to help the state respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Democratic House Speaker Mitzi Johnson says lawmakers will return in August once more is known about state revenue for the next fiscal year and what federal aid, if any, will be available to help Vermont cope with the financial hit caused by the pandemic.
