What is the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA)? 

CORA Policies for Special Districts 
Presented by: Jeffrey Erb and Colin Mielke
Seter and Vander Wall, P.C. Attorneys at Law

• The Colorado Open Records Act is a law that applies to numerous state and local governmental entities within Colorado, including special districts and library districts. 
• CORA’s purpose is to facilitate transparency in government by allowing the public access to most governmental records. 
• Public records can be obtained by any person through submittal of a CORA request to the governmental entity. 
• Unless there is an exception that allows a governmental entity to withhold a record, the governmental entity must provide the record within a certain amount of time.
