Lt. Gov. Zuckerman Stands with All Vermonters
MONTPELIER: Earlier today Lt. Governor Zuckerman was proud to stand with Governor Scott, Attorney General Donovan, President Pro Tempore Ashe, Speaker Johnson, and many others in support of S.79/H.228, an act relating to freedom from compulsory collection of personal information.
“This bill represents our common commitment to both the U.S. and Vermont Constitutions and their intent to protect the individual rights of all Vermonters,” said Zuckerman. “The bill, which proposes to promote public safety by protecting Vermont residents from compulsory collection of personally identifying information, protects our state powers and recognizes the long, positive history of immigration to our state and country.”
Lt. Governor Zuckerman said his office had received many calls from Vermonters concerned for community members. “We are contacting local, state, and national organizations working with immigrants and refugees to understand what services are available, what is needed, and how we can protect all members of our community.” Zuckerman continued, “I have always believed our diversity is our strength; economically, communally, and culturally. I look forward to ensuring Vermont remains inclusive and strong.
