Gov. Shumlin on a Sales Tax Holiday Proposal from Legislative Leaders


Location: Montpelier, VT

Gov. Peter Shumlin issued the following statement in response to a Sales Tax Holiday proposal from legislative leaders:

"I have a long history of opposing the sales tax in Vermont, leading the effort to remove the tax from clothes and shoes. We need to balance our desire to reduce the sales tax with our need to balance the budget, so one critical issue is how the state will pay for this $1.5 million package. But I like the idea and look forward to learning more about this proposal."
