MONTPELIER (AP) - The Vermont House is slated to debate increasing statewide education property tax rates.

A bill before the House on Thursday would raise the rate on a house and up to two acres from 94 cents to 98 cents per $100 of property value.

The tax rate on non-residential properties would go from $1.44 to $1.51.5 per $100 of value.

Several amendments are expected to be offered as the House debates the bill, including one to scrap Vermont's current highly complex school funding system.
