Statute: Repealed 1977
Vermont Supreme Court rules that the state’s general common-law reception
statute can be used to prosecute sodomy, since the state has no sodomy law.
This year in the Vermont legislature we have a bill that will prohibit an employee of a school district from encouraging, promoting or sanctioning
homosexual conduct. you can read the bill at http://www.leg.state.vt.us/docs/2002/bills/intro/H-259.HTM
This bill is part of the backlash to the civil unions bill passed last year.
