    Vermont Republican Gov. Phil Scott says he doesn't believe the U.S. Justice Department has done its homework by asking the state if it is complying with a federal law that requires the sharing of information about immigration enforcement.

    Scott said Thursday the state was careful in crafting its Fair and Impartial Policing Policy to ensure it does not violate federal law.
