Re: “Former Official: State Watchdog Helped Green Mountain Power, Not Vermonters

Cronyism and Government. It comes with the territory.

"Pay Attention: Distracted Driving Could Boost Your Insurance Rates By As Much As 41%"

"The insurance industry and regulators have to ensure any rate changes they make are justified, so even though cell phones aren't new to you and me, the risks and dangers they pose for drivers have only recently been substantiated and now distracted drivers are really seeing the effects on their premiums."
https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimgorzelany/…

While virtually everyone uses a cell phone, currently, only "... 16 percent of Vermonters smoked marijuana during the past year..."

Waiting to exhale...inevitably, law abiding citizens will, yet again, subsidize the irresponsible behavior of others.

Another 'new high'.

"Car insurance rates are likely to increase 4-6 percent in states with legal marijuana, a leading insurance industry actuary says."

What a 'rush'.....

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

Re: Cannabis attracts everyone, from lawyers to truckers, ...

Sanity and redundancy aside, a stoned lawyer is one thing. But, speaking of green flow, the prospect of a sky pilot driving a 40 ton rig at 65 mph on I-89 is another, entirely. One would hope, not just yet.

Re: “Walters: Vermont Likely to See Short-Term Revenue Boost

How about eliminating the $10,000 bribe enticing out-of-state workers to move to Vermont.

Re: “Head of the Class: Did Lawmakers Politicize Vermont’s Education Chief?

Re: The difference between education and nearly every other governmental service - education already has a governance structure made up of local school boards.

Are we to ignore the fact that Act 46 consolidation significantly decreases the number of school boards in the State by force, putting more power in the hands of the State Board of Education and the few large enrollment districts it controls?

What other government service is that monolithic, ubiquitous and restrictive?
