Vermont House delays minimum wage debate

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont House has delayed voting on an increase in the state's minimum wage due to a technical error in legislative documents.

The House was in the middle of a debate over a compromise increase when it was discovered that the House calendar - the document that lists bills to be taken up each day - did not accurately reflect the version of the bill passed by the Senate.

Minority Republicans protested, and House Speaker Shap Smith ruled that the debate would have to be put off, perhaps until Saturday, which is supposed to be the last day of the session.
