An environmental group is challenging the Vermont National Resources Agency over records of a stormwater runoff plan that has yet to be implemented after 15 years. The Conservation Law Foundation wants to review the decision-making process, particularly what led a plan developed in 2002 to be shelved by a new administration. State officials contend releasing the documents would lead to officials “censoring themselves because they’re afraid of what may be disclosed” and claim a “deliberative process privilege.” (11.22/05)
