Under current law, for tax years commencing on or after January
1, 2017, but prior to January 1, 2023, the credit for health-care preceptors
working in rural and frontier areas offers an income tax credit in the
amount of $1,000 to health-care professionals who provide a
preceptorship, an uncompensated mentoring experience for eligible health
professional students that includes a specified minimum amount of

personalized instruction, training, and supervision, during the applicable
income tax year.
The bill modifies the tax credit by:
  • Extending the period for which the tax credit may be
claimed to tax years commencing prior to January 1, 2033;
  • Allowing up to 300, rather than 200, preceptors to claim
the credit in any tax year;
  • Expanding who may offer a preceptorship to include a
medical doctor, doctor of osteopathic medicine, advanced
practice nurse, physician assistant, doctor of dental surgery

psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, licensed
professional counselor, licensed marriage and family
therapist, psychiatric nurse specialist, licensed addiction
counselor, or certified addiction counselor working in an
outpatient clinical setting who has been licensed in his or
her primary health-care field in the state by the applicable
licensing authority;
  • Expanding who may participate in a preceptorship to
include individuals matriculating at any accredited
Colorado institution of higher education seeking a degree
or certification in a primary health-care field;
  • Allowing nonconsecutive days to be counted when
determining the eligibility of a preceptorship for the credit;
  • Modifying the definitions of rural areas, preceptorship,
and primary health-care for purposes of the tax credit;
  • Modifying the certification requirements for taxpayers who
claim the tax credit; and
  • Providing a tax preference performance statement for the
tax credit.

HB22-1016 Voluntary Contribution Check-off Feeding Colorado Votes all Legislators01/12/2022Concerning a voluntary contribution designation benefiting the Feeding Colorado fund that appears on the state individual income tax return forms, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.Bill History - Fiscal Policy & Taxes

The bill creates the Feeding Colorado fund (fund) in the state
treasury. A voluntary contribution designation line for the fund will
appear on the state individual income tax return form (form) for the 5
income tax years following the year that the executive director of the
department of revenue (department) certifies to the revisor of statutes that

there is space available on the form and that the fund is next in the queue.
Once the fund is placed on the form, the department is directed to
determine annually the total amount contributed to the fund and report
that amount to the state treasurer and the general assembly. The state
treasurer is required to credit that amount to the fund, and the general
assembly appropriates from the fund to the department the costs of
administering money designated for the fund. After that amount is
deducted, the money remaining in the fund at the end of a fiscal year is
transferred to Feeding Colorado.
Following the statutory 2-year grace period for new tax check-offs,
the fund is required to achieve the minimum contribution amount of
$50,000 per year to remain on the form.
The fund is repealed on the sixth income tax year following the
year in which the director files the certification, unless it is continued by
the general assembly before then.

Section 1 of the bill changes the date on which Energy Outreach
Colorado disburses to the department of human services a portion of the
energy assistance system benefit charges that investor-owned electric and
gas utilities collect from January 1, 2022, to March 1, 2023.
Section 2 requires the public utilities commission (commission)
to adopt rules prohibiting electric and gas utilities from disconnecting a

customer's service:
  • On weekends;
  • On state or federal holidays; or
  • After 11:59 a.m. on a weekday that is not a holiday.
Additionally, the commission's rules must require that, under certain
circumstances in which a customer makes a request for reconnection of
service on a Monday through Friday that is not a holiday, the utility is
required to reconnect the customer's service that same day.
Section 3 establishes 3 income standards for determining a
household's eligibility for utility assistance as follows:
  • A household income at or below 200% of the federal
poverty line;
  • A household income at or below 80% of the area median
income; or
  • A household income that meets the income eligibility
criteria that the department sets by rule.
Section 3 also clarifies that the commission may approve a
year-round utility preference or advantage given to income-eligible
customers.

Usually, an owner of a powered wheelchair must seek diagnostic,
maintenance, or repair services of the wheelchair from the manufacturer.

The bill requires a manufacturer to provide parts, embedded
software, firmware, tools, or documentation, such as diagnostic,
maintenance, or repair manuals, diagrams, or similar information, to
independent repair providers and owners of the manufacturer's powered
wheelchairs to allow an independent repair provider or owner to conduct
diagnostic, maintenance, or repair services on the owner's powered
wheelchair. A manufacturer's failure to comply with the requirement is a
deceptive trade practice. In complying with the requirement to provide
these resources, a manufacturer need not divulge any trade secrets to
independent repair providers and owners.
Any new contractual provision or other arrangement that a
manufacturer enters into that would remove or limit the manufacturer's
obligation to provide these resources to independent repair providers and
owners is void and unenforceable.

Current law states that, with certain exceptions, a unit owners'
association (association) of a common interest community (community)
may regulate the use of common elements of the community (common
elements). The bill states that, in regulating the use of common elements,
an association shall preserve and protect unit owners' and their guests'

ability to use and enjoy common elements and shall not unreasonably
restrict or prohibit unit owners' and their guests' access to, or enjoyment
of, any common element. During maintenance, repair, replacement, or
modification of a common element, an association may restrict or prohibit
unit owners' and their guests' access to, and enjoyment of, a common
element only to the extent and for the length of time necessary to:
  • Protect the safety of any individuals, including unit owners,
their guests, and individuals performing the maintenance,
repair, replacement, or modification of the common
element; or
  • Preserve the structural integrity or condition of a repair,
replacement, or modification.
If an association must restrict or prohibit unit owners' access to one
or more common elements for more than 24 hours, the association shall
provide an electronic or written notice to each unit owner and post a
visible, clearly legible notice at each physical access point to the common
element, which notice includes:
  • A simple explanation of the reason for the restriction or
prohibition;
  • An indication of the estimated time or date upon which the
restriction or prohibition will no longer exist; and
  • A telephone number or e-mail address whereby a unit
owner may pose questions or concerns about the restriction
or prohibition for the consideration of the association.

The bill repeals an existing income tax credit available to
taxpayers who make contributions to enterprise zone administrators to
promote temporary, emergency, or transitional housing programs for
people experiencing homelessness and replaces that income tax credit
with one that is available in the entire state. Instead of having the
enterprise zone administrators and the office of economic development

manage the credit, the bill places that responsibility on the division of
housing in the department of local affairs.
The bill also expands the scope so that a taxpayer may claim the
tax credit when permissible contributions are made not only to an
approved project, but also to approved nonprofit organizations providing
certain qualifying activities.
The amount of the income tax credit remains the same for each
contribution; except that, for contributions made in an underserved, rural
county, the amount is 30% rather than 25%, and the new credit is capped
at $750,000 in contributions for the nonprofit organization, and if the
nonprofit organization also administers one or more approved projects,
the new credit is capped at an additional $750,000 per project. The new
credit's availability is limited to 8 years, and, in the same manner as the
enterprise zone tax credit that is being repealed, any credit in excess of a
taxpayer's liability for the income tax year for which the credit is claimed
may be carried forward for up to 5 years.

The bill establishes the community behavioral health-care
continuum gap grant program (grant program) in the behavioral health
administration (BHA). The BHA administers the grant program. As part
of the grant program, the BHA may award community investment grants
to support services along the continuum of behavioral health care and
children, youth, and family services grants to expand youth-oriented and

family-oriented behavioral health-care services. A community-based
organization, local government, or nonprofit organization is eligible for
a grant award.
The BHA must develop a behavioral health-care services
assessment tool that grant applicants can use to identify regional gaps in
services on the behavioral health-care service continuum. In awarding
grants, the BHA shall give preference to applicants providing a service
that addresses a gap in services identified with the assessment tool.
In order to receive a grant, an applicant must submit an application
and identify a source of contributing funds or nonfinancial contributing
resources, such as in-kind contributions, that directly support the
behavioral health-care services provided with the grant award.
Each grant recipient must report to the BHA information about the
use of the grant award. The state department of human services must
include information about the grant program in its annual State
Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART)
Government Act hearing.
The bill appropriates $90 million from the behavioral and mental

Current law requires a towing carrier (carrier) to notify law
enforcement, within 30 minutes after towing an abandoned vehicle, of the
carrier's name and the storage location and description of the vehicle. The
bill clarifies that the carrier is deemed to have complied if:
  • The carrier gave the location of the storage facility to law

enforcement when obtaining authorization for the tow; or
  • The carrier made 2 or more attempts within the 30 minutes
after the tow to notify a law enforcement agency but was
unsuccessful for reasons beyond the control of the carrier.
When a carrier tows a vehicle without the owner's or lienholder's
consent, current law requires the carrier to notify the department of
revenue, the owner, and the lienholder of the tow between 2 and 10 days
after the tow, thus imposing a 2-day waiting period before notification.
The bill repeals this waiting period and instead requires notice within 10
days after the tow. The carrier is authorized to use a telephone to notify
the owner or lienholder. Current law also denies the carrier daily storage
fees if the carrier fails to reasonably notify the owner and lienholder. The
bill forbids daily storage fees until the carrier has sent the required notice
to the owner and lienholder.
The bill requires that carriers that are towing a vehicle from private
property without the owner's, operator's, or lienholder's consent:
  • Charge the same fees for tows made without the owner's
consent as the carrier charges for tows made with the
owner's consent. These fees must be filed with the public
utilities commission (PUC) and posted at the carrier's
storage location.
  • Accept cash and major credit cards, as defined by rule of
the PUC, and, upon request, disclose the accepted forms of
payment;
  • Not charge storage fees for a day on which the carrier did
not store the vehicle;
  • Before connecting to a vehicle, photographically document
the vehicle's condition and the reason for the tow. Failure
to produce documentation of the vehicle's condition or the
reason for the tow creates a rebuttable presumption that any
damages to the vehicle were caused by the carrier or that
the tow was not authorized.
  • Maintain an area at each storage facility with lighting
adequate to inspect a vehicle for damage;
  • Upon demand of the owner, retrieve the vehicle or the
contents of the towed vehicle or allow the owner to retrieve
the vehicle or the contents;
  • Obtain authorization from the property owner, leaseholder,
or common interest community within 24 hours before
towing a vehicle from private property;
  • Give 24 hours' written notice before removing a vehicle
from a parking spot or the common areas of a
condominium, cooperative, apartment, or mobile home
park;
  • Upon request, provide evidence of the carrier's insurance
coverages;
  • Have a sign at storage facilities that states the name,
telephone number, and hours of operation of the carrier's
business;
  • Upon request, provide an itemized bill showing each
charge and the rate for each fee that the person has
incurred;
  • Give a written notice of the ability to make a complaint to
the PUC;
  • To perform a nonconsensual tow, other than for an
abandoned motor vehicle, from private property normally
used for parking, the property owner must have provided
adequate signs communicating the parking regulations that
subject a vehicle to being towed; and
  • Unless ordered by a peace officer, not tow a vehicle from
private property because the rear license plate shows the
vehicle registration is expired.
A carrier's mechanic's lien is abolished if the carrier tows a vehicle
from private property without the owner's, operator's, or lienholder's
consent.
If a carrier fails to comply with the provisions of the bill, the
carrier may not charge or retain any fees or charges for the services
performed with respect to the vehicle and must return any fees it collected
with respect to the vehicle. It is an affirmative defense in any action to
collect towing fees that the carrier failed to comply with these provisions.
If a carrier damages a vehicle or violates these provisions in a manner that
causes damages and refuses to reimburse the owner, operator, or
lienholder, the owner or lienholder may recover attorney fees.
The carrier and an owner or lienholder may use mediation to
resolve disputes involving nonconsensual tows. Any mediated agreement
may be submitted to the office of tow hearings (office), which is created
in the bill, and a court, both of which are authorized to enforce the
agreement.
The office is created within the PUC to adjudicate disputes
between carriers and owners or lienholders when a vehicle is towed from
private property without the owner's or lienholder's consent. The office
will employ hearing officers or use administrative law judges to govern
proceedings and to hold hearings to determine whether a carrier violated
the law or caused damages. The office may order carriers to reimburse
owners or lienholders, and this reimbursement may include attorney fees.
The final actions of the office are subject to judicial review in accordance
with the State Administrative Procedure Act.
Carriers are required to record certain information about each
nonconsensual tow, retain the information in their records for 3 years, and
produce the records within 48 hours upon request.
A carrier is prohibited from paying money or other valuable
consideration to a landowner or business for the privilege of
nonconsensually towing vehicles.
It is a deceptive trade practice to violate the provisions of the bill,
and the attorney general is responsible for enforcement.

There is currently a property tax exemption for an owner-occupied
residence of a qualifying senior or veteran with a disability (homestead
exemption) that is equal to 50% of the first $200,000 of the actual value
of the property. For property tax years commencing on or after January
1, 2023, the concurrent resolution:
  • Increases the maximum amount of actual value of the
owner-occupied residence of a qualifying senior or veteran
with a disability that is exempt from property taxation from
$200,000 to $300,000 for the 2023 property tax year and to
$300,000 plus cumulative inflation for each property tax
year thereafter; and
  • Makes the homestead exemption portable by allowing a
senior who qualifies for the exemption to move and
continue to claim the exemption without meeting the
10-year ownership and occupancy requirement, so long as
the senior has continuously owned residential real property
since qualifying for the exemption.
The concurrent resolution also makes a conforming amendment so
that the change in the actual value of which 50% is exempt does not
affect the general assembly's ability to raise or lower this amount.
