Vermont Considers Anonymity for HIgher Education Donations

The Vermont Senate cleared a bill to exempt certain donations to public higher education institutions from the state's public records law. Private donors who wish to remain anonymous could do so, although the amount and purpose of the donation would remain public. The identify of any donor who "transacts business" with the institution within three years of the donation would be public also.

The Vermont House will take up the bill this week.
