Vermont Legislature passes budget adjustments

first_imgThe Vermont Legislature returned to work Wednesday before finally adjourning the special session by passing a number of changes notably identified by Governor Douglas as problematic. While not addressing the governor’s concerns over total spending and tax levels, the Legislature did agree to others, in particular with the impending deficit in the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund and the timing of when the increase in the Capital Gains tax would begin. While these concessions did not prevent the governor from vetoing the state budget, they could have helped the Democratic leadership muster enough votes to override the veto Tuesday.The state budget companion bill (H 442) included:1. Postpone Capital Gains change to July 1, 2009The effective date of the capital gains changes were changed from January 1, 2009 to July 1, 2009. This change will be accounted for with a partial income tax rate reduction in 2009 and a full rate reduction in January 2010.2. Allowing Farmers/Timber sales to retain the current 40% exclusion for Capital Gains. Individuals over 70 will also retain the current 40% exclusion for one year. (An amendment was attempted to change this to 65 years of age, but was defeated.)3. Provide Research and Development tax credits as of FY 2011. 4. Address the UI fund shortfall by increasing employer contributions to fund UI by raising the taxable wage base from $8,000 – $10,000 in 2010; freezing benefits by maintaining the maximum weekly benefit at $425 (this amount was scheduled to increase to an estimated $438 as of July 1st); and creating a 12 person study committee of legislators to review underlying issues such as those employers who carry negative balances.5. Provide the Vermont Telecommunications Board with $400,000.6. Minor changes in the state employee retirement incentive as well as changes in employee position language to address constitutionality concerns to limit the Legislature’s review of position reductions.7. Vermont will have two sales tax holidays, one on August 22 and one on March 6, 2010.8. The Next Generation Fund will receive $1.5 million more to be split among the Vermont State Colleges, the University of Vermont and Vermont Student Assistance Corporation for scholarships. This money is coming from estate tax revenues, which would have gone to the Higher Education Trust Fund.9. Clean Energy Development FundThe clean energy development fund is expected to receive over $30 million of ARRA funds in the coming months. To prepare for these funds the governance structure of the fund has been changed. The Investment Committee will become a permanent board and will be given the authority to hire and supervise the fund manager. The fund manager will be housed in the Department of Public Service for administrative purposes.Legislators also passed a technical correction bill, S.1. This bill amends the Economic Development bill (H.313) to eliminate redundant and unclear language as well as provides clarifications to the budget, health care reform and tax bills.In other news under the golden dome, Senator Susan Bartlett, D-Lamoille County and long time chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced she would be running for Governor. She joins Senator Doug Racine, Secretary of State Deb Markowitz and Senator Peter Shumlin as officials who have expressed either an intent or interest in seeking the state’s highest officeSource: Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commercelast_img read more

Dempsey heading home to MLS

first_imgTottenham have confirmed that forward Clint Dempsey is returning to Major League Soccer after just one season at White Hart Lane. Press Association The United States captain joined Spurs from fellow Barclays Premier League side Fulham last summer for around £6million, scoring 12 goals in 43 appearances for the north London club. Dempsey, 30, first made a name for himself playing for the New England Revolution before joining Fulham, and is widely expected to join the Seattle Sounders, who currently sit seventh in the MLS Western Conference. last_img read more

Trevor Lawrence vs. Joe Burrow: Which QB has the edge in College Football Playoff championship?

first_imgAnd Burrow pointed out the other difference-maker — both quarterbacks can make plays with their legs.That’s the backdrop for the quarterback matchup that is a sign of the times in college football. One team has the five-star quarterback who hasn’t lost since high school. The other is a gift from the transfer portal who spent four years waiting for his turn to play. It’s a question that will be asked Monday — and perhaps again when they meet in the NFL.“Trevor has a lot of championship experience, and I think that counts for something, not that Joe won’t deliver,” Fowler said. “There’s tremendous pressure on both of them to key their offense. I can’t wait to see it unfold, though. It’s really tough to choose.” There’s no doubt about that. Both teams are 14-0. Burrow’s record-setting season in the Southeastern Conference led to the Heisman Trophy. Lawrence is 25-0 as a starter and has a chance to lead Clemson to back-to-back national championships. There’s a distinct possibility both quarterbacks will be taken No. 1 in the next two NFL draft, respectively.MORE: LSU-Clemson odds, predictions, trendsKnowing that, does either quarterback have an advantage, however slight, in this matchup that could go down as one of the best games ever?The case for Burrow is simple: He’s in LSU’s backyard. He has passed for 275 yards or more in every game, and he led LSU to victories against six top-10 teams. Burrow torched Oklahoma for 493 passing yards, 22 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns in a 63-28 Peach Bowl blowout against Oklahoma.“I would give probably a slight edge to Joe Burrow just because of how consistent their offense has been this year,” ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said.Herbstreit said Auburn is the only team that gave Burrow issues this season — a game in which he still finished with 321 yards, one touchdown and an interception.“If you give him the same look or he knows what you’re in, you have no shot of slowing him down,” Herbstreit said. “I don’t know if in my years of playing the game and covering the game, probably over 30 years, I have ever seen a quarterback executing at the level of Joe Burrow in a system like this.”Then there’s Lawrence, who led a four-play, 94-yard drive in the 29-23 victory against Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. Lawrence also led Clemson to a 44-16 blowout against Alabama in last year’s College Football Playoff championship game, a game where he upstaged Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa.“I don’t know if there’s anybody you’d trust (more) or not want to bet against than Lawrence,” ESPN’s Chris Fowler said. “Never having lost a game since high school, just the toughness that he showed against Ohio State when he got pissed off after getting hit in the head and really played much better after that. The 94-yard drive. The 67-yard run. He made plays in that game that are going to live in the history of the sport.”MORE: SN expert picks for CFP title gameBurrow’s full-season resume — which included 5,208 yards and 55 touchdowns — tops Lawrence’s. The second-year Clemson quarterback finished with 3,431 yards, 33 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Each quarterback was almost flawless in November: Lawrence threw for 1,622 yards, 19 touchdowns, no interceptions while Burrow threw for 2,403, 25 touchdowns, two interceptions.Burrow has the numbers, but Lawrence has the experience on the national championship stage, even if he doesn’t see it that way.“I don’t know how big the advantage is,” Lawrence said. “I think it’s just from an experience standpoint it feels good knowing you’ve been here, kind of how the week is going to go. Other than that, I don’t think it helps too much. The game is going to be won on the field.”Both quarterbacks know that: They met each other at the Manning Passing Academy last summer and are complimentary of each other’s styles.“I like a lot of things about his game,” Lawrence said. “Just his pocket presence is really good. His accuracy, obviously, and just how he’s pretty mobile, too. He can extend plays and has a really good feel for pressure and doesn’t take too many sacks.“He is a really good player, really smooth,” Burrow responded. “Still young, which is crazy. He’s light-years ahead of where I was when I was his age. I’m excited to compete against him.” NEW ORLEANS — LSU quarterback Joe Burrow isn’t afraid to lay out what everybody’s thinking about the much-anticipated showdown with Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence in the College Football Playoff championship at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.“I think myself and Trevor are the two best in the game right now,” Burrow said at media days. “I think that’s a big reason why both teams are here.”last_img read more
