HB 17-1029: Allowing Records Custodians to Deny Access to Confidential Personal Information

On January 11, 2017, Rep. Polly Lawrence and Sen. Bob Gardner introduced HB 17-1029, “Concerning Public Records that are Subject to Denial of Inspection.”

The bill allows a custodian to deny access to confidential personal information records and employee personal e-mail addresses. The provisions of the ‘Colorado Open Records Act’ that relate to civil or administrative investigations and trade secrets and other privileged and confidential information apply to the judicial branch.

The bill was introduced in the House and assigned to the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee. It is scheduled to be heard in committee on February 2 upon adjournment.
