VT Lawmaker Denied Paperwork on How Universal Healthcare Will Be Paid For

A lawmaker says her request for documents and memos related to Green Mountain Care was denied.
MONTPELIER, Vt. - A lawmaker says her request for documents and memos related to Green Mountain Care was denied.

Rep. Cynthia Browning (D-Arlington) wanted to know how Vermont's universal healthcare plan is going to be paid for.

Rep. Browning filed a public records request with the Department of Health Care Reform. Deputy Commissioner Michael Costa said no, citing executive privilege as the reason.

"I was disappointed, I wasn't surprised," Browning said. "I don't think the administration wants to make what they're working on public and I think that's a disservice to Vermonters."

Rep. Browning isn't giving up. She plans to propose a resolution for the House to vote on that would demand the documents from the governor.
