Vermont Governor evaluates progress

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's first-term Republican Gov. Phil Scott has a lot on his plate; a Democrat-controlled legislature, a new federal administration and making good on his promise to not raise taxes and fees.

He gives himself good marks 100 days into his tenure. But even Scott, who served six years as lieutenant governor and 10 year as a lawmaker, said Tuesday the job is harder than he thought.

Republicans say Scott has been a capable leader, noting that his state budget does not raise taxes and fees.

His Democratic opponents, however, say Scott has proven to be a poor communicator when it comes to detailing plans for his administration, leading lawmakers to kill two of his proposals to consolidate state agencies.
