A DDIS ON Â Â INDE P E NDEN T
to the Editor
Shumlinâ€™s Â bold Â vision Â shadows Â a Â weakness Â amid Â lofty Â goals Gov. Â Peter Â Shumlinâ€™s Â strength, Â as Â witnessed Â by Â his Â Monday Â visit Â to Â Middlebury Â to Â speak Â at Â a Â legislative Â luncheon, Â is Â the Â mile-Âhigh Â clarity Â through Â which Â he Â sees Â political Â challenges. A Â corresponding Â weakness Â is Â that Â he Â too Â quickly Â dismisses Â the Â swamps Â that Â lie Â in Â the Â weeds Â of Â detail Â between Â his Â lofty Â goals. Â Itâ€™s Â a Â trait Â that Â transcends Â issues, Â from Â the Â natural Â gas Â pipeline, Â to Â health Â care Â reform Â and Â school Â governance. Consider Â his Â conviction Â supporting Â the Â value Â of Â the Â natural Â gas Â pipeline Â running Â through Â Addison Â County Â on Â its Â way Â to Â Rutland, Â via Â the Â International Â Paper Â plant Â in Â Ticonderoga, Â N.Y. Â His Â perspective Â is Â based Â on Â a Â few Â unassailable Â facts: Â natural Â gas Â is Â currently Â 50 Â percent Â cheaper Â WKDQSURSDQHRUKHDWLQJRLODWWKHSRLQWRIFRQVXPSWLRQLWFXWVFDUERQ HPLVVLRQVE\DERXWSHUFHQWFRPSDUHGWRIXHORLORUSURSDQHZKLOHLWLV DIRVVLOIXHOWKHVWDWHZRQÂśWKDYHWKHFDSDFLW\WREHSHUFHQWVXIÂżFLHQW on Â renewable Â energy Â for Â another Â 35 Â years, Â so Â (because Â natural Â gas Â is Â better Â than Â other Â fossil Â fuels) Â we Â should Â use Â natural Â gas Â as Â a Â bridge Â fuel Â until Â the Â market Â determines Â renewable Â energy Â is Â less Â expensive. Bam. Â Case Â closed. Only Â itâ€™s Â not. Â Not Â accounted Â for Â are Â the Â personal Â tribulations Â of Â homeowners Â as Â they Â deal Â with Â Vermont Â Gas Â Systems Â and Â the Â likelihood Â of Â imminent Â domain Â proceedings, Â and Â this Â basic Â question: Â Is Â the Â state Â doing Â all Â it Â should Â for Â Vermont Â residents Â in Â these Â circumstances? The Â governor Â answers Â that Â question Â by Â maintaining Â that Â the Â highest Â public Â good Â for Â Vermont Â is Â to Â create Â a Â robust Â and Â viable Â economy. Â Extending Â the Â natural Â gas Â pipeline, Â he Â argues, Â reduces Â living Â expenses Â for Â WKRXVDQGVRI9HUPRQWUHVLGHQWVZLOOVDYHEXVLQHVVHVDQGLQGXVWULHVDORQJ WKHFRUULGRUKXQGUHGVRIPLOOLRQVRIGROODUVRYHUWKHQH[W\HDUVDQG will Â create Â more Â jobs Â for Â those Â living Â in Â the Â areas Â served. Â Thatâ€™s Â a Â higher Â public Â good, Â he Â says, Â than Â rejecting Â the Â project Â because Â a Â handful Â of Â residents Â are Â upset Â it Â diminishes Â their Â personal Â property. Writ Â large, Â heâ€™s Â right. Â But Â that Â doesnâ€™t Â mean Â the Â state Â cannot Â also Â argue Â for Â fair Â treatment Â of Â SURSHUW\YDOXHVIRUDUHVSHFWIXOSURFHVVWKDWOLVWHQVWRUHVLGHQWVKHDUV WKHLUFRQFHUQVDQGDQVZHUVWKHPLQDSRLQWE\SRLQWPDQQHUDQGSHUKDSV even Â argues Â for Â a Â common Â defense Â fund Â to Â help Â affected Â property Â owners Â recoup Â in Â cash Â payments Â the Â diminished Â value Â of Â their Â property. What Â Shumlinâ€™s Â cool Â logic Â doesnâ€™t Â adequately Â factor Â is Â that Â the Â public Â good Â for Â thousands Â of Â Vermonters Â comes Â at Â the Â expense Â of Â a Â very Â few Â property Â owners Â under Â whose Â land Â the Â pipeline Â travels. Â The Â protestors, Â in Â frustration, Â are Â striking Â out Â at Â many Â things Â they Â perceive Â as Â injustices Â and Â fears Â â€” Â from Â property Â loss, Â to Â safety Â concerns, Â to Â aesthetics Â â€” Â but Â if Â the Â state Â could Â provide Â a Â process Â by Â which Â the Â DIIHFWHGODQGRZQHUVVDZDIDLUHUUHWXUQIRUWKRVHZKRDUHVDFULÂżFLQJWKH most, Â perhaps Â the Â rancor Â would Â diminish. Passing Â that Â task Â off Â to Â the Â Public Â Service Â Board, Â while Â leaving Â his Â administration Â out Â of Â the Â mix, Â isnâ€™t Â the Â message Â Addison Â County Â residents Â were Â hoping Â to Â hear Â and Â only Â contributes Â to Â the Â mess Â within Â the Â weeds. ********** On Â the Â stateâ€™s Â role Â in Â Â funding Â education, Â the Â problem Â is Â complex, Â the Â governor Â says, Â but Â not Â complicated. Â The Â state Â currently Â faces Â a Â declining Â VWXGHQWSRSXODWLRQZLWKÂż[HGVFKRROFRVWVWKDWDUHFRPSRXQGHGE\D system Â heavy Â on Â labor Â (teachers) Â with Â health Â care Â costs Â that Â are Â triple Â LQĂ€DWLRQ7KHORQJWHUPDQVZHULVWRFRQVROLGDWHVRIHZHUWHDFKHUVDQG administrators Â are Â paid Â to Â teach Â a Â declining Â number Â of Â students. Thatâ€™s Â common Â sense. Â Particularly Â when Â Vermonters Â understand Â that Â the Â state Â teacher-Âpupil Â ratio Â is Â the Â lowest Â in Â the Â nation Â at Â 9.4-Â1, Â which Â the Â national Â average Â is Â 16-Â1. Â 7KDWÂśVWKHLVVXH+RZWKHVWDWHÂżQDQFHVHGXFDWLRQLVDGLVWUDFWLRQ 6KXPOLQVD\VEHFDXVHWKHVWDWHFRQVWLWXWLRQDVFRQÂżUPHGLQ%ULJKDPY State) Â insists Â all Â students Â have Â equal Â access Â to Â educational Â opportunity. Â No Â better Â funding Â law Â has Â been Â suggested, Â Shumlin Â maintains, Â and Â until Â it Â is Â the Â state Â must Â deal Â with Â the Â current Â funding Â model Â and Â focus Â on Â running Â a Â PRUHFRVWHIÂżFLHQWV\VWHP&DVHFORVHG Shumlinâ€™s Â message Â is Â clear: Â What Â we Â have Â today Â isnâ€™t Â making Â the Â grade, Â he Â says, Â and Â the Â worst Â thing Â we Â could Â do Â is Â refuse Â to Â try Â to Â do Â better Â by Â staying Â the Â same Â course. Â 7KHVZDPSKHVNLUWVLVÂżOOHGZLWKWKHYHVWLJHVRIORFDOFRQWUROSURSHUW\ tax Â fairness Â and Â the Â uncertainty Â that Â the Â proposed Â changes Â will Â lead Â to Â better Â student Â outcomes. ************ Ditto Â on Â health Â care Â reform. Â Shumlinâ€™s Â operating Â premise Â is Â this: Â If Â we Â had Â kept Â the Â status Â quo, Â health Â care Â costs Â would Â have Â consumed Â 40 Â percent Â of Â a Â Vermontersâ€™ Â household Â income Â by Â 2020. Â Such Â growth Â was Â not Â sustainable, Â so Â the Â system Â had Â to Â change. Â &DVHGLVPLVVHGGHWDLOVSHQGLQJ 9HUPRQW+HDOWK&RQQHFWLVWKHÂżUVWVWHSLQWKHUHIRUPLQLWLDWLYHVDQG moves Â toward Â a Â single-Âpayer Â system Â that Â change Â the Â system Â from Â a Â fee-Â for-Âservice Â based Â on Â quantity Â of Â treatments Â to Â a Â system Â based Â on Â the Â quality Â of Â care. Â It Â is Â a Â major Â overhaul Â of Â the Â health Â care Â system. Neither Â the Â governor Â nor Â the Â Green Â Mountain Â Care Â board Â know Â all Â the Â details, Â or Â how Â it Â will Â work Â out Â in Â the Â end, Â but Â at Â the Â same Â time Â they Â are Â FRQÂżGHQWLWZLOOEHEHWWHUWKDQOHDYLQJWKLQJVDVWKH\ZHUHKHDGHGIRU certain Â collapse. Â At Â least Â now, Â the Â governor Â says, Â we Â have Â the Â opportunity Â to Â get Â it Â right Â and Â set Â the Â state Â on Â a Â more Â secure Â path Â to Â prosperity. Thatâ€™s Â bold Â optimism Â mixed Â with Â a Â saucy, Â practical Â approach Â to Â problem Â solving Â that Â starts Â by Â bringing Â all Â issues Â down Â to Â commonsense Â realities Â â€” Â and Â then Â letting Â others Â deal Â with Â the Â unintended Â consequences Â that Â inevitably Â follow Â changes Â that Â are Â so Â fundamentally Â disruptive. It Â is Â an Â effective Â way Â to Â push Â for Â change Â on Â the Â big Â ideas. Â Whether Â it Â also Â produces Â effective Â outcomes Â will Â be Â the Â governorâ€™s Â legacy. Angelo Â S.
