Government Transparency
Bill Number: HB20-1106
Year: 2020
ACLU Position: Oppose
Sponsors: D. Williams


Under current law, any completed internal investigation file is
open for public inspection. In the case of an exonerated officer, the bill
states that the investigation file is only available for inspection if a court
issues an order of inspection after finding the requester has a compelling
interest in inspecting the investigation file and the requester is a party to
the investigation, the complainant, or a person who can demonstrate a
viable interest in the investigation.
The bill allows an agency complying with a request for an internal
investigation file to bill a reasonable fee for the time involved in
complying with the request.
