Bill: SB21-132
Title: Digital Communications Regulation
DescriptionConcerning the regulation of digital communications, and, in connection therewith, creating the digital communications division and the digital communications commission.
Summary

The bill creates the digital communications division (division) and
the digital communications commission (commission) within the
department of regulatory agencies. On an annual basis and for a

reasonable fee determined by the commission, the division shall register
digital communications platforms, which are certain
communications-oriented online businesses, such as social media
platforms or media-sharing platforms, that conduct business in Colorado
or own or operate services that are offered to Colorado residents. A
digital communications platform that fails to register with the division
commits a class 2 misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 for
each day that the violation continues.
The division shall investigate and the commission may hold
hearings on claims filed with the division alleging that a digital
communications platform has allowed a person to engage in one or more
unfair or discriminatory digital communications practices on the platform,
which practices:
  • Include practices that promote hate speech; undermine
election integrity; disseminate intentional disinformation,
conspiracy theories, or fake news; or authorize, encourage,
or carry out violations of users' privacy; and
  • May include business, political, or social practices that are
conducted in a manner that a person aggrieved by the
practices can demonstrate are unfair or discriminatory to
the aggrieved person. Such practices, if done in an unfair
or discriminatory manner, might include:
  • Practices that target users for purposes of collecting
and disseminating users' personal data, including
users' sensitive data;
  • Profiling users based on their personal data
collected;
  • Selling or authorizing others to use users' personal
data to provide location-based advertising or
targeted advertising; or
  • Using facial recognition software and other tracking
technology.
If a person who files a complaint with the division exhausts all
administrative remedies and proceedings, the person may file a civil
action in district court alleging an unfair or discriminatory digital
communications practice.

2017; 2 additional retail liquor store licenses on or after January 1, 2022;
and 3 additional retail liquor store licenses on or after January 1, 2027.
The bill modifies the provisions governing the ability of a retail

liquor store to obtain additional retail liquor store licenses as follows:

for a license on or before January 1, 2016, to obtain one
additional retail liquor store license on or after January 1,
2017, but removes the requirement that the licensee be a
Colorado resident;

multiple license provisions applicable to liquor-licensed

obtain: A maximum of 5 total retail liquor store licenses

2021; a maximum of 8 total retail liquor store licenses
between January 1, 2022, and December 31, 2026; a
maximum of 13 total retail liquor store licenses between
January 1, 2027, and December 31, 2031; a maximum of
20 total retail liquor store licenses between January 1,
2032, and December 31, 2036; and an unlimited number of
retail liquor store licenses on or after January 1, 2037; and
  • For additional licenses obtained on or after the effective
date of the bill, requires a person seeking additional
licenses to apply to transfer ownership of, change location
of, and merge at least 2 retail liquor store licenses located
within the same local licensing authority jurisdiction as the
applicant's premises into a single retail liquor store license.
Additionally, the bill prohibits a retail liquor store from allowing
customers to use a self-checkout to complete an alcohol beverage
purchase and requires a retail liquor store to:
  • Verify the age of a customer attempting to purchase an
alcohol beverage by examining the customer's valid
identification; and
  • Maintain certification as a responsible alcohol beverage
vendor.
The bill sets state and local application fees for a retail liquor store
licensee applying for a transfer of ownership, change of location, and
merger of 2 retail liquor store licenses.
