Commentary by EAN Executive Director Jared Duval

 

An effective economic recovery strategy should include at least three components: keep more money recirculating in-state; reduce Vermonters’ expenses; and create new, good-paying jobs for Vermonters. Transitioning off fossil fuels for how we get around and heat our homes can accomplish all three goals simultaneously.
