Vermont needs a digital open meeting law

To the Editor:

Vermont needs a digital open meeting law.

During recent statewide and regional discussions about applying the Internet to local government, participants have asked ourselves whether the current open meeting law allows all that has become possible.

The secretary of state and interested citizens, journalists, legislators and officials should meet at a statewide conference to discuss updating Vermont's open meeting law to allow online transparency of government and prevent online collusion.
