MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Licenses to operate a restaurant or lodging or teach in Vermont’s schools all appear likely to get more expensive.

Fees for them and a host of other state services are due to go up under a bill endorsed by the Vermont House on Thursday.

Among the biggest percentage jumps would be for a license to operate a small bed-and-breakfast, with a capacity of up to 10. That license would increase from $80 to $150 - a jump of about 88 percent.

In total, the bill would raise about $2.8 million in new revenue for the state.

It’s won preliminary approval on an 88-57 roll call vote and is up for final House action on Friday before heading to the Senate.
