Last week the Lieutenant Governor performed a
part of his job description he very rarely gets to do: he cast the tie-breaking
vote on the End of Life bill. We’ll talk to Phil Scott about that vote and his agenda for
the start of his second term. We’ll also
hear live music with Dwight & Nicole.
Gekas and Phil Scott may be two of the most polite candidates running for

Scott expressed unease with having to challenge his opponent directly as Gekas
smiled and laughed in agreement.

Lt. Governor Phil Scott says the state is committed to

office building for the Waterbury complex may
have to be scaled back if the state doesn’t get enough money from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
