(Cite as: 15 V.S.A. § 1150)
  • § 1150. Findings and intent

    (a) The general assembly finds that persons attempting to escape from actual or threatened domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking frequently establish new addresses in order to prevent their assailants or probable assailants from finding them.

    (b) It is the purpose of this subchapter to:

    (1) enable state and local agencies to respond to requests for public records without disclosing the location of a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking;

    (2) promote interagency cooperation with the secretary of state in providing address confidentiality for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking; and

    (3) enable state agencies and local agencies to accept a program participant's use of an address, and local agencies to accept an address, designated by the secretary of state as a substitute mailing address. (Added 1999, No. 134 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. Jan. 1, 2001.)
