Colorado coalition publishes online and searchable guide to state’s sunshine laws

The Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition has published its new guide to the state’s sunshine laws. For the first time, the guide is online, searchable and indexed by topic. 

“The guide is comprehensive, addressing the questions most frequently asked of CFOIC about the Colorado Open Records Act, the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act, the Colorado Open Meetings Law and access to judicial branch records,” according to a post on the CFOIC’s website. The guide also includes information on the reporter’s shield law, cameras in the courtroom, juvenile records and proceedings, and resources regarding the federal Freedom of Information Act. 

The Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition is a member of the National Freedom of Information Coalition.
