Gov. Phil Scott delivers his 2020 State of the State address Jan. 9 in Montpelier.

Gov. Phil Scott is scheduled to lay out his 2020 spending priorities to a joint session of the Vermont House and Senate on Tuesday.

In the annual governor’s budget address, scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Statehouse, Scott is expected to suggest ways to pay for some of the proposals he made in his state-of-the-state address from earlier this month.

Scott has proposed a universal after school program, affordable housing and investments in electric vehicles. He also reiterated his long-standing call to rescue Vermont  from a demographic crisis that is preventing much of the state from growing while the tax base shrinks.
