MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont House is expected this week to take up school spending restrictions that were part of a bill passed last year to encourage school districts to look at merging with their neighbors.

The Senate this past week passed a measure to repeal the part of the bill that contained penalties for schools that saw high year-over-year spending growth.

The House Education Committee has given a cool reception to repealing those spending restrictions, and instead has proposed loosening them somewhat.

The uncertainty about the outcome comes as local districts are trying to finalize budgets to put before local voters in a matter of weeks.
