• On matters affecting public information, the General Assembly did little during this year’s session to improve access. The most significant legislative win for government transparency doesn’t actually affect governments.
The Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition is a non-partisan alliance of groups, news organizations and individuals dedicated to ensuring the transparency of state and local governments in Colorado by promoting freedom of the press, open courts and open access to government records and meetings.

Welcome to our website. We hope that you find information here that is helpful and encouraging. Please consider becoming a member of the CFOIC or donating to our cause.
