The Vermont Health Department is confirming that a second person has died from Easter Equine Encephalitis. When Tropical Storm Irene forced the closure of the Vermont State Hospital last year, it meant the loss of more than 50 beds for psychiatric patients. And that's resulted in an increase in the number of people who are waiting in emergency rooms because there aren't enough mental health beds available. In New Hampshire, a Strafford County judge is hearing from advocacy groups suing the state over a new law that effectively blocks out-of-state students from voting there.
