Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos has announced the creation of a new page on his office’s web site devoted to the history of Vermont’s public records law.
Condos says the special web presentation is designed to enhance the public’s understanding of the law and the right to know about the activities of government.
The presentation includes reports, testimony, case law, and the original acts that make up the public records law. Looking at the original acts, for example, allows a viewer to see how records bills were amended during legislative deliberations.
Condos says the site is meant to be a companion to the web-based public records database created by his office.
