Thank you to Public Assets Institute for sharing this new report:
With a major turnover in political leadership in Montpelier this January, the new administration and Legislature should zero in on three fundamental initiatives to move the state forward:
- Ensure that work pays and all Vermont families can meet their basic needs.
- Make smart, evidence-based investments in programs and infrastructure.
- Restore public confidence in state government by improving and promoting good governance, including efficacy, fairness, and transparency.
Those are the recommendations contained in A Framework for Progress: Investing in Vermont’s people, infrastructure, and good government, a report released today.
About Public Assets Institute:
Our mission is to improve the well-being of ordinary citizens, especially the most vulnerable, by conducting research and fiscal analysis, disseminating information, and developing and advancing policies that state government can enact. In its work on Vermont’s tax and budget policy, Public Assets focuses on three areas: health care finance, education finance, and family economic security. We provide facts, analyses, and policy ideas to inform and stimulate public discussion about how Vermont can be a state that works for all of its residents.
