Vermont Governor Calls Special Session
Gov. Phil Scott called a special session for May 23, 2018. The governor is planning to veto the state budget and property tax bills passed during the regular session.
Gov. Scott has promised to veto any legislation that increases taxes or fees. If vetoed, the Legislature has until the end of June to pass a spending bill before the new fiscal year commences on July 1.
Lawmakers hope Gov. Scott will sign the current bills and make the special session unnecessary.
