1998 LAND RECORDS STUDY COMMITTEE
As part of Act 125 (1998), the so-called 'Bianchi Bill,' the General Assembly created a study committee that reported back to the Legislature in January, 1999 with recommendations on the computerization of Vermont's land records.
The committee was charged with studying the "feasibility, cost, obstacles, and ways in which to computerize Vermont's land records in the towns so that Vermont land titles may be more easily, more reliably and less expensively searched."
It considered the creation of form deeds and mortgages to identify encumbrances on title, the need for authorized electronic signatures, and mechanisms for financing a town computerized land records system.
