Education Op/Ed

Letter to the editor: Bill would ease school tax load

Thank you for printing Bram Kleppner’s letter urging changes in the education property tax. Our representative Mari Cordes has submitted an excellent bill, H.388, which would relieve the staggering impact of the existing education property tax, especially on seniors and lower income Vermonters.

As many communities struggle to find a way to keep their local schools, and as many homeowners find themselves with crushing tax increases, this bill would help to resolve both urgent problems.

The bill is apparently still in the Ways and Means Committee. Hopefully it will reach a floor vote soon.
