Description

Emails generated by the Colorado legislature are subject to open records, however 9NEWS exposed how each lawmaker uses a private email account to conduct state business. This two-part report exposes why private email accounts make transparency in government even more difficult for the public through a public records test. The system is designed to treat elected officials differently than other state employees. https://vimeo.com/151932804
