Vermont has dropped two places to 16th among the states in funding programs to protect kids from tobacco.

That’s according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, which says states aren’t spending enough of the money they’re getting from a major legal settlement with tobacco companies on programs aimed at preventing youth smoking.

Maine was ranked as tops in the country for the sixth year in a row.

New Hampshire moved up to 41st place, from dead last in 2006.
