Gov. Phil Scott used his administration’s weekly press conference to advocate for initiatives

As has been the case for the last several weeks, Gov. Phil Scott used his administration’s weekly press conference to advocate for initiatives he would like to see in the state’s budget working its way through the legislature. Scott and Department of Economic Development Commissioner Joan Goldstein discussed proposals the Scott administration has made that were missing from the recently passed House budget in hopes of shaping work underway in the Senate. Scott said his proposals are designed to work together to have a long-lasting impact and help Vermont overcome persistent challenges that have been around for years. Scott has previously pitched his ideas for housing, broadband, work force development and others. On Tuesday he outline over $100 million in economic development proposals that he has made.
