The Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition’s new 30-page “Guide to Colorado’s Open Records and Open Meetings Laws” covers what you need to know about access to information from state agencies and local governments.
Whether you are a journalist or a member of the public, the guide is intended to help you understand and use Colorado’s open-government laws. Updated, revised and reorganized for 2019, it explains commonly cited statutory provisions, references important case law and offers tips for getting the records and access to meetings that you’re entitled to under the law.
Topics include the Colorado Open Records Act, the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act, the Colorado Open Meetings Law, juvenile records, jail records, Colorado’s reporter’s shield law, cameras in the courtroom and judicial branch records.
