Farewell, Inauguration And The Supreme Court: The Week In Politics
It’s been a busy week in Montpelier. The state Supreme Court blocked Gov. Peter Shumlin from making an appointment to the Court. Shumlin gave his farewell speech to lawmakers. There are new leaders in both the House and the Senate. And Gov. Phil Scott outlined his vision for the state.
We’re talking about all these issues with a roundtable of political reporters. We're joined by Terri Hallenbeck of Seven Days, Elizabeth Hewitt of VTDigger and April McCullum of the Burlington Free Press.
