In case you were wondering, the Vermont-New Hampshire border hasn't changed.

The two states' attorneys general have reaffirmed their shared boundary.

State laws require the two to meet every seven years to reaffirm the border. The laws followed a 1935 U.S. Supreme Court decision
that settled what had been a bitter dispute.

New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney and Vermont
Attorney General William Sorrell fulfilled their responsibility Monday on a bridge over the Connecticut River between Norwich, Vt., and Hanover, N.H.

The two lawyers joked at first about the dispute that started over which state would be able to tax a southern Vermont paper mill. The court ruled in 1935 the boundary is the low-water mark on the Vermont side of the river.
