Insurance Regulations, Orders, Bulletins & Market Conduct

Laws

Vermont law is set forth in a set of green books entitled “Vermont Statues Annotated”.  The books are similar to an encyclopedia, with each Volume containing one or more Titles.  Titles are broken down into Chapters and Sections.

They can be found in most public libraries, and are on the Internet at http://www.leg.state.vt.us/statutes/statutes2.htm. Insurance Law is found in Title 8.
