Vermont Seeking Public Input on Regulating Contractors


Vermont officials are seeking a second round of feedback from the public on a proposal to regulate home improvement and construction contractors.

Lauren Hibbert, of the Office of Professional Regulation with the Secretary of State, says the initiative began after staff at the Attorney General’s Consumer Assistance Program noticed a high frequency of complaints about contractors from property owners.
Hibbert’s office of the Vermont Public Radio report suggested ’what we were thinking of light regulation Vermont.

The arrangement may include records of contractors, required insurance, and a written agreement between property owners and service providers.

The Vermont law requires the Department of State’s office to conduct a cost-benefit analysis before creating a new professional arrangement.

The hearings will be held in Burlington on November 27th, in Springfield on December 4th and in Newport on December 11th.
