“The budget is a moral document,” says James Haslam, Director of the Vermont Workers’ Center, “it uses money to show what we value.

Once again this year’s budget process is upside down: it puts money before people. We can do better. This legislative session, the People’s Budget Campaign will introduce a new way of budgeting that puts people before money. Stay tuned!”
