Gov. Phil Scott stands with House Speaker Mitzi Johnson behind him on the day of the budget address.

In his budget address, Gov. Phil Scott outlined his key spending initiatives for the coming year. This includes a proposal to finance a long-term plan to clean up Lake Champlain - and the state's other major lakes and streams - with existing revenues. We're taking a closer look at the Governor's budget priorities.

We're joined by Gov. Scott's finance commissioner Adam Greshin.

We'll also hear from:

  • Brian Shupe of the Vermont Natural Resources Council on the clean water plan
  • Sen. Ann Cummings on the estate tax proposal
  • Carolyn Wesley of Building Bright Futures on the child care proposals
