Public Comment & Public Record Information
Public Comments are Public Records: All public comments received by the Green Mountain Care Board, whether posted to the Board’s website or sent only to Board members/staff, are “public records” under Vermont law. This means that, absent a specific exemption under state law, any member of the public may access the Board’s public comments by submitting a public records request.
Posting of Public Comments: The Board will not post public comments on its website where it determines, in its discretion, that the comment contains inappropriate or offensive language.
Please contact Christina McLaughlin if you have any questions regarding public comments.
How to Submit a Public Comment
You may submit a comment to the Board at any time or during a special comment period by filling out our Public Comment Form.
