In a slow, light rain - the way air feels after a firefighter shuts down the last hose - Wendall Mansfield was celebrated and mourned last Friday.

Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, has been leading the charge in the Legislature to delay forced mergers by a year. A bill to do so, H.39, has passed both the House and the Senate, but the two chambers are at loggerheads over how to reconcile their respective proposals.

Scheuermann expressed frustration with her fellow House lawmakers for how they had handled negotiations, and said she would keep advocating for a delay.

“In order to do this right, we need to extend this compressed timeframe,” she said.

Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, is one of the state’s most vocal supporters of a delay — the Stowe and Elmore-Morristown school districts are among those ordered to merge, and have received praise for actually making the requisite moves to prepare for July 1. Scheuermann said it’s frustrating that both chambers seemed to give their respective delay bills plenty of support, but now there’s an impasse at reconciling the two versions.

“It’s stuck, frankly,” Scheuermann said. “It seems some don’t want to do anything.”
