Group calls for more transparency, accountability in Vt. government

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A political advocacy group is renewing its call for comprehensive reforms to bring more transparency and accountability to state government.

The Campaign for Vermont says there have been many promises of reform over the years, but very little has changed in the way government is run. Among the group's recommendations: better online access to public records, creation of an independent transparency authority, financial disclosure requirements for elected officials and conflict of interest laws.

Campaign for Vermont hopes more transparency will lead to a change in the way government is administered to a results-based system that measures state programs by their effectiveness and efficiency.
