Walters: Scott, Senate Close to Mental Health Pay Fix

The chairs of two key Vermont Senate committees say they are working out a plan to give workers in the mental health system a long-overdue bump in pay, and that Gov. Phil Scott is — at least in principle — on board. “We have a plan, we’ve got a bill, we’re closing in on exactly how much money we need to do what we want,” said Sen. Claire Ayer (D-Addison), chair of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, after emerging from a closed-door meeting with Scott Friday morning.
