AG Donovan to people examining public records: no cameras – VT Digger

Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan won’t let members of the public – including reporters - viewing public records take photos of those records. It’s a new rule. The ACLU doesn’t like it.

"On Wednesday, VTDigger inspected public records at the Attorney General’s Office for the first time since the high court ruled in September that records can be inspected without charge for copies and staff time for redaction and reproduction. While staff at the AG’s office promptly arranged a session for a reporter to inspect records, it also provided a policy handout that places a prohibition on requesters taking cellphone photographs of records they are inspecting, or making their own copies by other means."

    The high court ruled in September, that records can be inspected
    without charge for copies and staff time for redaction and reproduction.

    So what’s TJ’s issue, redact what his office needs to and let those go
    at it………………Sounds like AG office has something to hide, what the
    difference copies or pictures ??
