Attorneys General To Meet At The Border

Print More

The attorneys general of New Hampshire and Vermont are honoring a decades-old requirement to inspect the state border and make sure all markers and monuments are properly maintained.

Under the laws of both states, the attorneys general have to meet at the border every seven years and inspect it on foot.

New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney and Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell are scheduled to meet at 11 a.m. Monday on the bridge that spans the Connecticut River between Norwich, Vt., and Hanover, N.H. They don’t plan to walk the entire 150-mile border.

The laws were passed by both states in 1935, and ended some 18 years of litigation over where the boundary line between the states should be located.
