As legislators get down to business in Montpelier, a big priority for Lt. Gov. Phil Scott is business itself. Namely, what the business community says would help it thrive in the coming year.  In his inaugural address on Jan. 8, Scott said Vermont "economic policies are not firing on all cylinders" and that the Legislature should make the economy and workforce its top priority.

On the next Vermont Edition, we talk policy and politics with Scott, including what he calls the state's "affordability crisis."

Also in the program, why Vermont is easy pickings for would-be embezzlers. For the third time in six years, an annual report has named Vermont the state most at risk for major embezzlement cases. Chris Marquet of Marquet International, an investigative security consulting firm, discusses Vermont's standing in their report. 

Broadcast live on Tues., Jan. 13 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
