Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, who sponsored H.39, said she was “really, really disappointed” and worried there would be no deal. House lawmakers, she said, “had an opportunity today to agree to a proposal that essentially was the House bill with a couple of modifications.”

“I’m afraid that there might be some reluctance to even move forward with a bill at all, at this point, from some in the leadership,” she said. “So I’m frustrated.”

There's a lot of skepticism in Montpelier with regard to investing in tourism marketing.  We have a lot of work to do.  Out goal is to pass a bill next year that will put into place this dedicated fund," she (Scheuermann) said.

Some of that guidance might come from Montpelier, where lawmakers are trying to hammer out a compromise that would give merging districts a little time to work out some of the details.

Stowe Rep. Heidi Scheuermann sponsored H.39 and hopes the Legislature passes a bill this session.

“I knew, clearly, that it was going to be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do any substantive legislative changes to Act 46. It just was not going to happen,” Scheuermann said. “But at the same time, if we’re going to be forced to merge we need this extra time to do it right, to do it well, and to ensure our communities understand everything that’s going on and are committed to whatever direction we’re going to go in.”
