Governor Signs Order Providing More Flexibility and Additional Relief in Response to Flooding

On July 19, 2023, Governor Phil Scott signed an addendum to his Emergency Declaration (Executive Order 03-23), providing additional temporary regulatory relief to aid Vermont’s response and recovery efforts. 

“As we continue to respond to the aftermath of severe flooding, more flexibility is needed to expedite recovery efforts,” said Governor Scott. “My team will continue to evaluate other regulatory relief that will help accelerate our response and ease the burden on Vermonters.” 

In Addendum 2, the Governor directs the Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner to extend license and registration renewals, temporary registration certificates, and number plates for 60 days beyond their effective expiration date.

The Executive Order shall continue in full force and effect until the Governor, in consultation with DPS/VEM, assesses the emergency and determines whether to amend or rescind this Order.
