Statement on Governor Scott’s 2020 Budget Address by Amy Spear, Vice President of Tourism, Vermont Chamber of Commerce
Today, Governor Scott announced an additional investment in destination marketing demonstrating the Administration’s support for the tourism industry which is an important economic driver for Vermont’s rural communities. Tourism represents one of the largest contributions of out-of-state money into the state’s economy, resulting in significant revenue to state government. This investment will support our towns, local businesses, workers, taxpayers and our future. The Vermont Chamber will continue tourism advocacy efforts throughout the session to ensure that this investment in tourism is approved by the Legislature.
