Colorado passes bill removing some barriers to public records requests

The Pueblo Chieftain: The Colorado House and Senate have passed a bill eliminating some barriers to open records requests.

Senate Bill 286 prohibits state agencies and local governments from requiring records requesters to show identification to get Colorado Open Records Act records, according to the bill.

It also obligates records custodians to accept credit cards or electronic payments for records if they already take them for other products and services and bars per-page charges for records provided in digital formats such as PDFs.
