Getting public records from the Colorado General Assembly will be more expensive

The Denver Post: Getting public records from the Colorado General Assembly is about to get a little more expensive.

The Executive Committee of the Legislative Council voted 4-1 on Tuesday morning to raise the maximum amount per hour — from $30 to $33.58 — that the legislature can charge for retrieving records subject to Colorado’s Open Records Act, or CORA.

The reason for the increase is a 2014 law that set a statewide limit on what all Colorado governments could charge for public records and gave them permission to adjust their maximum hourly rates for inflation every five years. The law allowed local and state officials to raise their rates starting July 1, and that’s what the committee did for its records Tuesday morning.
