A Colorado law went into effect July 1 requiring that government officials make available homeland security spending records, redacting if necessary portions that deal with “specialized details of security arrangements or investigations.” The Rocky Mountain News got very different responses when it sought records on the $130 million in grants to the cities and counties. Ten northern Colorado counties provided thick binders of information; the city of Denver a single page listing broad categories such as “voice communication – $12 million.” (8/5/05)
