Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Attorney General’s Office announced the launch of a new public records site on its webpage today. In support of transparent and open government, the Attorney General’s Office will now post all public record requests and responses on its webpage. The Vermont Attorney General’s Office firmly believes that a vibrant democracy depends upon citizens knowing and understanding how their government operates. Publicly available records are an integral part of an open and fair government. By posting all record requests and productions, Vermonters will now have more access to public information.

“As a government agency, we have a duty to improve transparency and hold ourselves accountable to the people we serve,” Attorney General TJ Donovan said. “Transparency is a foundational part of a democratic government and we are committed to increasing Vermonters’ access to information through a more open public records process.”

Last year the Attorney General’s Office processed approximately 115 public records requests and produced over 10,500 pages of records. The Attorney General’s Office is committed to transparency and will continue to ensure that Vermonters’ right to know is protected. Public record requests and productions can be found here.
