Berlin, VT - Vermont Democrats have once again voted to slow economic growth and government efficiency in favor of conducting yet another study. In response to this vote Tim Schaffer, Communications Director for the Vermont Republican Party, issued the following statement:


“Earlier today, the House Committee on General, Housing and Military Affairs voted along party lines against Governor Scott’s Executive Order. The Governor’s Executive Order would create a unified Department of Liquor and Lottery and eliminate duplicative processes, improve accountability, and realize cost savings while maximizing revenue for the State.

"By not passing this Executive Order, Vermont Democrats, specifically Representatives Helen Head and Thomas Stevens, have decided to reject an effort that will make government more efficient and potentially reduces taxes.

“Governor Scott and Vermont Republicans remain committed and are steadfast in our efforts to address the affordability crisis and grow Vermont’s economy. Unfortunately, Vermont Democrats would rather continue to show the operations of Montpelier while wasting taxpayer funds on a study that will join the others on the dusty shelf.”
