|Monday Briefing - 1/29/07

Governor Douglas put property tax reform front and center. He reminded the
legislature that for the past two sessions he has offered numerous proposals
to bend the trend in education spending. Fully recognizing his ideas had
been rejected by the legislature, he made property tax reform a key part of
his budget proposal. Calling for a cap on property taxes, the Governor said
it was the only way to make our investments in public education sustainable
and that his recommendation is straightforward and reasonable.
Calling for more affordable housing, the Governor asked for establishing a
new neighborhood initiative that would involve streamlined Act 250 approval.
