Vt. Gov. Signs Bill Strengthening Records Law

Associated Press via Vermont Governor Signs Bill Strengthening Public Access:
A bill strengthening Vermont's 35-year-old public records statutes was signed into law Wednesday, removing a financial barrier for citizens who want to sue when they've been denied access by awarding them reimbursement of their legal fees if they win their case. 
The measure also mandates the appointment of public records officers in state agencies and establishes a panel to examine more than 200 exemptions to the law.
Kudos to Vermont.
