Killington calls for increased tourism spending

KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- The selectboard in Killington, Vt., is asking the state for increased spending to promote tourism.

A letter from the board says it is concerned Vermont tourism is getting "outpaced" by other states competing in the same markets.

Vermont's tourism budget was $2.9 million during the 2012-13 fiscal year, ranking it 44th out of the 48 states that responded. Only Delaware, Indiana, Iowa and Rhode Island spent less.

The Rutland Herald reports ( Lisa Gosselin, commissioner of the state Department of Economic Development, suggested the number of tourist visits, not the amount spent to bring them to Vermont, is a better measure of the health of tourism in the state.

She said Vermont tourism is doing well.
