WASHINGTON — The new year brings a host of state laws that take effect Tuesday — including Vermont paying people to move there.

The state will give people up to $10,000 over two years for those employed by out-of-state companies who are willing to work remotely from Vermont in a home office or cooperative work space.

“We have a demographic problem in the state. We need more people,” said Governor Phil Scott in supporting the measure.
