State cannot sit idly by as competitors spend more

To the Editor,
Travel matters. That is the motto of National Travel and Tourism Week, a week Vermonters should use to celebrate the industry that is absolutely critical to our success as a state - economically and otherwise. From the millions of dollars in tax revenue the industry generates ($391 million in FY 2018) to the thousands of Vermonters whose jobs and salaries are supported by tourism (32,000 jobs in FY 2018), the economic impact of the industry is over $2.8 billion.
Unfortunately, far too often, leaders in Montpelier simply don’t recognize this importance.
