Vermont lawmakers will consider a myriad of tax proposals Tuesday. House and Senate negotiators are set to resume discussions over which taxes to increase to balance the state budget.
Meanwhile, the Senate is looking at a separate increase in the cigarette tax. The finance committee Monday approved an 80-cent hike that would push the tax up to $3.42 a pack. Critics note that is twice the tax in New Hampshire.
The House has already passed a 50-cent cigarette tax increase as part of its budget package.
