Vermont Public Records

The Vermont public records law originates in Article 6 of the Vermont State constitution, and evolved further into Title 1, Chapter 5,Section 316 through 320 of the Vermont state statutory code. The law was created to ensure public access to records of state government for the purposes of openness and transparency.  Certain records are protected by both Federal Law (which supersedes anything the state might do) as well as the state.  The information contained in these records is considered sensitive or confidential and they are protected to ensure the safety of the state and it's people.  Definitions of public and exempt records specific to Vermont can be found in Section 317, Subsection C 1 through 39.
