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.”

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.”
