Large Vt. towns reject annual school budgets

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Vermonters in larger communities are opposing school budgets this year.

Voters in Burlington, Bennington, Rutland and Montpelier rejected school budgets on Tuesday as part of Town Meeting Day.

In Montpelier, spending would have increased by more than 2 percent, but cause about a 13 percent tax increase.
