Governor Delivers 2022 Budget Address. Year-Two Fully Funded, But Not Announced!

Governor Scott delivered his 2022 budget address this afternoon, and here are some quick takeaways for VSEA members:

1) Governor mentioned pension funding issue twice, but nothing concrete, outside of he wants to talk;

2) One-time $20 million funding injection to the Vermont State Colleges, with a directive to examine restructuring;

3) Proposed body cams for Corrections Officers; and

4) Talked about consolidation of DCF’s Child Development Division.

Not Included In Address: Full funding of the Pay Act, meaning year two of the contract is funded!

As this posts, VSEA Strategic Analyst Adam Norton is preparing a more comprehensive overview of this afternoon’s address.
