Vermont Gov. Phil Scott proposes $6.8 billion budget for Fiscal 2022 - Reformer

Gov. Phil Scott on Tuesday presented the Vermont Legislature with a $6.83 billion budget proposal for fiscal 2022, offering a $210 million package of one-time spending initiatives intended to strengthen the state’s COVID-19 recovery and address stubborn problems.

"The budget, which does not include new taxes or fees, would allocate a total of $4.6 billion in state spending, including $1.99 billion in the general fund and $1.89 billion on preK-Grade 12 education. It anticipates $2.2 billion in federal spending, not counting yet-to-be allocated additional federal coronavirus relief.

Scott, in an address before a virtual joint session of the Legislature, asked for caution in using one-time funds to “solve problems and fund projects that have been stalled for years” as well as lay the foundation for a stronger recovery."
