Gov. Peter Shumlin’s administration has scheduled two forums where the public can discuss the Vermont state budget for the fiscal year beginning next July 1. Each fall, the governor’s administration prepares a budget to be presented to lawmakers in January. In 2012, lawmakers passed a bill calling for forums during the fall so budget writers can hear from the public. They’ll be carried via Vermont Interactive Technologies on Oct. 23 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and on Nov. 5 from 2:50 to 4:45 p.m. The public can participate in the first forum by going to VIT studios in Brattleboro, Johnson, Lyndonville, Middlebury, White River Junction, Williston and Montpelier. The second will be from studios in Bennington, Brattleboro, Johnson, Lyndonville, Middlebury, Rutland, Springfield, St. Albans, White River Junction, Montpelier and Newport.
If you can’t make the Forum tomorrow, be sure to offer your input on November 5.
