MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont lawmakers are dealing with a sticky issue — a bill that would change the grading system for maple syrup.
The Senate has passed a bill that would, for example, change Grade A Fancy syrup to "Golden Delicate." Grade A Medium Amber would be called "Amber Rich."
WCAX-TV reports proponents say the changes would unify the classification system across the United States and Canada.
The House would need to approve the bill. Similar bills are pending in Maine, New Hampshire and New York.
