The Vermont Legislative Research Service (VLRS) of the James M. Jeffords Center
Request a full policy reports (reports that are approximately 5 pages or so, fully researched and documented) and/or a quick hit memos that answer specific questions in a much shorter time period.
The types of research requests we should be able to fill include:
- Investigations into practices and programs in other states (through the Web, the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL), and phone contact with other state officials);
- Reports summarizing the latest academic studies on a particular topic;
- Information on federal programs and grants;
- and, information regarding the state of Vermont.
Legislators should please keep in mind that we will not be able to fill all requests due to time constraints and/or difficulty in finding the requested information, but we will do our best to get the information you request to you as quickly as possible..
