Senate To Revisit Secrecy For College Donors

Print More

The Vermont Senate is expected to revisit its decision to allow some donors to the University of Vermont and state colleges to keep their contributions anonymous.

The move comes after open-government advocates complained that keeping some donations secret could allow for undue influence over operations at UVM and the colleges.

Senate President Pro Tem Peter Shumlin says his intention is to kill the provision making the donor lists secret. Shumlin is also running for governor.

Supporters of keeping the lists under wraps say making them open could discourage some people from giving to the schools.
