VTDigger Takes Open Records Fight From Court To The Legislature

VTDigger, the non-profit news organization based in Montpelier, has dropped its legal campaign to force state officials to disclose records about how the state managed its oversight of the federal EB-5 foreign investment program.

Now the organization’s founder says she plans to advocate for a change to state law that would make records more accessible to the public.

“This lawsuit was seeking seven days of communication between United States Citizenship and Immigration Service and the Vermont EB-5 Regional Center,” said Anne Galloway, the former Times Argus and Rutland Herald editor who founded VTDigger in late 2009.
