Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, said low-income renters will likely bear the brunt of the new costs from landlords who will pass them on to tenants.

“Some people will certainly take advantage of this but they will generally be homeowners, low and middle income homeowners,” Scheuermann said. “But it will be paid in large part by low-income renters.”
