Vermont Chamber releases Legislative Report Card

first_imgThe purpose of the Legislative Report Card is to clearly and succinctly depict the positions of Vermont’s 180 legislators on important business issues. The Vermont Chamber works closely with members of all political parties to champion legislation that will help businesses prosper and stay in Vermont.According to Duane Marsh, “We have found that many of our issues, the business communities, are the same issues facing all Vermonters – property taxes, roads and bridges, healthcare, and the cost of living within the state. With the current economic climate, it is even more important that business owners and all Vermonters understand how their legislators voted on the issues that affect their daily life.”www.vtchamber.com(link is external)Vermont Chamber of Commerce | Legislative Report Card .nolink {color: #3E3E3E; text-decoration: none; font-weight: normal} .digifront {color: #CCCCCC; text-decoration: none; font-size: 10px;} body, p, td, th, ul, li, form, i { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; } b {font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;} h2 { font-weight: bold; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #000000; } h3 { font-weight: bold; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #000000; } small { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; } input { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; } textarea { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; } .footertxt { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #3E3E3E; text-decoration: none; font-size: 10px; } select { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; } .preftxt { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #000000; text-decoration: none; font-size: 9px; } .digfront { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #CCCCCC; text-decoration: none; font-size: 10px; } .btn { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; background-color: #FFCC66; } .bb { font-weight: bold; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } a { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #3300CC; text-decoration: underline} .text1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #000000} .text2 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #000000 } .text2_alt { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #006699; font-weight: bold} .text3 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #FFFFFF; font-weight: normal} .text3reg { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #FFFFFF ; font-weight: normal} .text3bold { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #FFFFFF; font-weight: bold} .text3link { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #FFFF66; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: underline} .link1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #FF0000} .link2 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; color: #FF0000 } .link3 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #3300CC; text-decoration: underline} .textinfo { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #336699} .photo_border { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #FFFFFF} .title { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 18px; font-weight: bold; color: #006666} .visitingtext { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #999966} .menu { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; color: #996600; text-decoration: underline} a:hover {color: #33cc00;}.InntopiaZ { z-index: 1; height: 122px;}.InntopiaForm { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; z-index: 1; font-size: 9px;}.InntopiaText { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #FFFFFF; font-size: 10px; font-weight: bold;}.InntopiaTitle { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #CCCC66; font-size: 14px; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;}.InntopiaButton { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; font-weight: bold; color: #FFFFFF; background-color: #336666;}0&&parent.frames.length) { d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);} if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i Visiting Vermont, Welcome to Vermont Order our Free Seasonal Guide!
