MONTPELIER, Vt. – The Attorney General’s office and the Secretary of State’s office announced a series of joint public meetings to hear feedback and ideas from the public on the home improvement industry.
In January 2018, the Secretary of State’s Office of Professional Regulation produced a Preliminary Sunrise Assessment, evaluating possible means of regulating the home improvement industry to achieve public protection with minimal intrusion into the marketplace. Public hearings in Burlington, Newport, and Springfield will include a presentation on the report’s findings and an opportunity for public questions and answers. The assessment was made at the request of the Vermont Senate Committee on Government Operations. The Attorney General’s Office’s involvement in these public meetings stems from its enforcement authority.
The local hearing will take place Dec. 4, 5-6:30 p.m. at Selectmen’s Hall, 96 Main Street, in Springfield, Vt.
