EBT restrictions (Vermont)

Vanessa Nason filed this request with the Department of Health & Human Services of Vermont.
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Vanessa Nason

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Vermont public records law (1 V.S.A. §§ 315-320), I hereby request the following records:

–Specific foods, products, or services that cannot be purchased using EBT cards
–Types of establishments that do not accept EBT cards (for example, jewelry stores, firearms dealers, etc.)

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

I received the attached Public Records Request and we do not have any records responsive to this request in this department. This request needs to be sent to the Public Records Officer for the Department for Children and Families. The Public Records Officer for that department is Luciana.DiRuocco@vermont.gov<mailto:Luciana.DiRuocco@vermont.gov>. I have made her aware of the request, and I am sure when she is back in the office Monday she will respond, but a formal request really should be sent to her from you.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
