A new survey shows Vermont's biggest companies are optimistic about the state's economy.
The Vermont Business Roundtable has been surveying CEOs of prominent companies for the past decade. This latest survey has been retooled with help from economist Jeff Carr, with hopes of giving more meaningful results.
Among the findings-- most of the responses were positive or neutral supporting to the idea that Vermont's economy continues a slow recovery.
Only 2 percent of CEOs forecast a decrease in employment in the next three months.
And manufacturing was the most optimistic sector for the second straight quarter.
