Vermont is one of 34 states not meeting requirements of a federal law of cracking down on sex offenders.
The 2006 law aims to track offenders and requires states to take part in a nationwide tracking effort. But more than half the states in the nation are not holding up their part of the deal, including Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.
Five states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Nebraska and Texas-- have given up on being able to comply. As a result, they're giving up millions in federal grants.
