Days before the U.S. Air Force could make its decision whether to base new F-35 fighter jets at the Burlington International Airport, the Burlington City Council voted down resolutions aimed at preventing the planes from flying at the airport.  But opponents are not giving up on their efforts.

The city of Burlington has purchased an insurance policy for protection against potential lawsuits in connection with its airport. Now that the policy has been obtained, a delayed plan by the City Council to debate and vote on two resolutions related to basing F-35 fighter jets at the airport can be re-scheduled.

The head of the city council in the Vermont city of Burlington says the council will not discuss the F-35 fighter jet at its upcoming meeting because of a lack of the proper insurance.
