MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Legislature is getting ready to kick off the 2021 session with most of the pomp and circumstance occurring remotely.

Democratic Rep. Jill Krowinski, the presumptive incoming speaker of the House says they are trying to make it as normal as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, except it will be on Zoom.

The Senate will also be meeting remotely, but Lt. Gov.-elect Molly Gray will be sworn into office Thursday in the Senate chamber.

Gov. Phil Scott will be sworn in for his third term on Thursday and he is then scheduled to give his inaugural address.
