AN ACT RELATING TO THE USE OF VERMONT ADDRESSES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF VERMONT ORIGIN
It is hereby enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Vermont:
Sec. 1. ATTORNEY GENERAL; REPRESENTATIONS OF VERMONT
(a) The attorney general shall amend the Representations of Vermont Origin rule CF 120.07 to include the following language: “A company whose business it is to ship, distribute, or similarly process goods or provide services may use a Vermont address to describe the location of its own facilities in Vermont. The company may also use, and permit the use of, its own name and Vermont address, as long as the company also discloses the name and out‑of‑state address of its client to identify where payments, returns, customer service inquiries, or similar transactions should be directed, and, when shipping goods, may use the name of the out‑of‑state client without that client’s address as long as the out‑of‑state address is provided within a reasonably short period of time, such as on an invoice. A shipper or fulfillment house may not use, or permit the use of, a Vermont address to describe the location of its out‑of‑state client in connection with the advertising, marketing, or selling of the client’s goods or services.”
(b) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary and without having to comply with any further rulemaking requirements, the attorney general shall amend the Representations of Vermont Origin rule CF 120.07 by filing a revised adopted rule with the secretary of state and the legislative committee on administrative rules.
Sec. 2. EFFECTIVE DATE
This act shall take effect upon passage.
