Denver -- Senator Ray Scott (R-Grand Junction) today announced that an open records bill (SB-40) slated for a hearing by the State Affairs Committee next Wednesday, February 22, would be rescheduled for Wednesday, March 1, so numerous stakeholders who have expressed concerns about the measure, as written, can be heard and consulted with.

“I hate to have to delay a hearing on this bill again but this is a highly complex issue on which we’ve heard  a variety of stakeholder concerns, “ said Scott.  “Whether more time and discussions will resolve all these concerns remains to be seen, but it’s a matter of such importance that I believe we can take more time to work through all the issues.”
