Released on September 6th, 2016 by the Public Assets Institute, a Framework for Progress is a companion document to the State of Working Vermont report, released in December 2015, which provides the data and analysis behind these recommendations. We acknowledge Vermonters’ well-being also requires racial justice, environmental quality, protection of workers’ rights, and gender equality, which these recommendations can advance but not accomplish on their own.
1. Ensure that work pays and all Vermont families can meet their basic needs.
2. Make smart, evidence-based investments in programs and infrastructure.
3. Restore public confidence in state government by improving and promoting good governance, including efficacy, fairness, and transparency.
