From dairy farms to newsrooms, Vermont businesses are bracing for a crunch from trade tensions between the United States and other countries caught up in a tariff tit-for-tat.
State officials say they do not yet have clear measures of how the escalation of tariffs is affecting the state’s economy.
But industries say they are preparing for the worst.
Vermont agriculture officials say that the tariffs other countries are imposing on American goods are likely to hit farmers in the state, including dairy farmers.
Agriculture Deputy Secretary Allison Eastman said it’s too soon to chart the specific impact.
