- Associated Press - Thursday, March 10, 2016

DENVER (AP) - In a story March 8 about impaired-driving tests and public disclosure, The Associated Press reported erroneously that a bill that passed the Colorado Senate would shield test results from public disclosure. The bill would shield a database maintained by the state Health Department from public disclosure, but test results would still be public through police and court records.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Colorado Senate votes to shield impaired-driving tests

DENVER (AP) - A state database about impaired driving could be partially shielded from public disclosure.

The state Senate gave unanimous approval Tuesday to a bill to keep personal identifying information in impaired driving cases from public disclosure.



Test results would still be public through police and court records.

The change would mean that only criminal defendants, their attorneys, members of law enforcement and parties in a case would be able to see specific test results in the database.

The state Health Department would still be able to release statistics about impairment tests, but not individual test results.
