Colorado Ranks High on Survey of Corruption Risk

Listen Now

Colorado is vulnerable to corruption, according to a new survey from The Center for Public Integrity in Washington, DC. Over the past year, researchers rated all 50 states on more than 300 different measures of government transparency, accountability, and enforcement. Put together those results, and Colorado scores a dismal D. Colorado Public Radio is partnering with the Center and in the coming months will look into some of the issues those results uncover.

To kick things off, host Ryan Warner talks with the Caitlin Ginley, who's overseeing the project for the Center for Public Integrity, about the study's overall findings, and with reporter Megan Verlee, who gathered details from some of the people who are involved in Colorado's ethics policies.
