Gov. Shumlin to sign law to ensure accountability

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The state of Vermont wants to make sure state government is meeting the needs of its citizens.

Gov. Peter Shumlin is scheduled to sign a new law Wednesday that requires the state to use data to determine if state programs are working as intended.

It's one of a number of laws the governor is signing this week.

He's also scheduled to sign Wednesday a bill that will make it easier for people to make their homes more energy efficient.

On Monday, he signed a law raising the state's minimum wage. The next day, he signed a law requiring that police get more training before using electronic stun guns. On Thursday, he's due to sign a law banning the use of hand-held cellphones while driving.
