DescriptionConcerning security protections for certain criminal justice system personnel.
Summary

Under current law, it is unlawful for a person to make available on

Title: Transfer Jurisdiction To Veteran's Speciality Court
DescriptionConcerning the authority to transfer jurisdiction of a veteran defendant's case to a jurisdiction with a veteran's speciality court.
Summary

Under current law, a court must inquire at the defendant's first

Bill: HB21-1017
Title: Protect Human Life At Conception
DescriptionConcerning the protection of human life beginning at conception.
Summary

The bill prohibits terminating the life of an unborn child and
makes a violation a class 1 felony. The following are exceptions to the
prohibition:
  • A licensed physician performs a medical procedure
designed or intended to prevent the death of a pregnant
mother, if the physician makes reasonable medical efforts

under the circumstances to preserve both the life of the
mother and the life of her unborn child in a manner
consistent with conventional medical practice; and
  • A licensed physician provides medical treatment, including
chemotherapy or removal of an ectopic pregnancy, to the
mother that results in the accidental or unintentional injury
to or death of the unborn child.
The pregnant mother upon whom termination of the life of an
unborn child is performed or attempted is not subject to a criminal
penalty. The sale and use of contraception is not prohibited by the bill. A
conviction related to the prohibition of the termination of the life of an
unborn child constitutes unprofessional conduct for purposes of physician
licensing.
The bill states that any act, law, treaty, order, or regulation of the
United States government that denies or prohibits protection of a human
person's inalienable right to life is null, void, and unenforceable in this
state and that the courts of the United States have no jurisdiction to
interfere with Colorado's interest in protecting human life at conception
when human life begins.

Bill: HB21-1023
Title: Energy Facility Real Property Classification
DescriptionConcerning the classification of real property on which a renewable energy facility is located.
Summary

Currently, the location of a small or low impact hydroelectric
energy facility, a geothermal energy facility, a biomass energy facility, a
wind energy facility, or a solar energy facility on real property does not
affect the classification of that real property for purposes of determining
the actual value of that real property. As a result, a county assessor cannot
use the location of the facility as a basis for reclassifying the real

property. The bill creates an exception to this requirement for real
property that, immediately prior to the location of the facility, was
classified as agricultural. Therefore, an assessor will be able to consider
the location of the facility when determining whether the real property
should be reclassified.

Bill: HB21-1024
Title: Title Certificates Off-highway Vehicle Transfers
DescriptionConcerning requirements relating to the transfer of an off-highway vehicle, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Summary

Current law requires an off-highway vehicle to have a certificate
of title in order to be transferred unless:
  • The off-highway vehicle was first transferred before July
1, 2014, and not subsequently transferred to an off-highway
vehicle dealer; or
  • The off-highway vehicle was used exclusively for

agricultural purposes on private land.
Section 2 of the bill requires all off-highway vehicle transfers on
or after July 1, 2022, to have a certificate of title, but the agricultural
exemption is not changed.
Section 1 exempts private transfers of off-highway vehicles from
sales tax if the transfer occurred on or after July 1, 2014, and before July
1, 2022.
Current law authorizes motor vehicle dealers, salvage pools, and
insurers to electronically access the department of revenue's ownership
and lienholder records to verify motor vehicle ownership and lienholding
information to prevent fraud. Section 3 authorizes off-highway vehicle
dealers to access this system to verify the same information on
off-highway vehicles for the same reasons.
Notwithstanding the requirement that an off-highway vehicle have
a title to be purchased by a dealer, current law authorizes a dealer to
purchase an off-highway vehicle that was initially sold before July 1,
2014, and was never titled. The dealer must obtain an affidavit from the
owner and then use the affidavit to obtain a title. Section 4 extends this
authorization and procedure to off-highway vehicles:
  • Privately transferred on or after July 1, 2014, and before
July 1, 2022; or
  • Used exclusively for agricultural purposes on private land.

Bill: HB21-1025
Title: Nonsubstantive Emails And Open Meetings Law
DescriptionConcerning a clarification under the Colorado open meetings law of the requirements governing communication by electronic mail that does not relate to the substance of public business.
Summary

Under current provisions of the Open Meetings Law (OML), if
elected officials use electronic mail to discuss pending legislation or other
public business among themselves, the electronic mail constitutes a

meeting that is subject to the OML's requirements. The bill substitutes the
word exchange for the word use in describing the type of electronic
mail communication that triggers the application of the OML.
The bill also clarifies existing statutory provisions to specify that
electronic mail communication between elected officials that does not
relate to the merits or substance of pending legislation or other public
business is not a meeting for OML purposes. Under the bill, the type of
electronic communication that also does not constitute a meeting for

Bill: HB21-1042
Title: Water Storage Tanks Grant Program
DescriptionConcerning the creation of the water storage tank wildfire mitigation grant program.
Summary

The bill establishes the water storage tank wildfire mitigation grant
program (grant program) within the forest service. Grant recipients may
use grant money to purchase water storage tanks for wildfire firefighting
efforts. The grant program only awards grants to entities that are an
agency of local government, a county, a municipality, a special district,
a tribal agency or program, or a nonprofit or not-for-profit organization

that is registered and in good standing with the secretary of state's office.
In awarding grants, the forest service considers the potential impact of
additional water storage tanks in the applicant's jurisdiction or area.
Grant recipients are required to report to the forest service, and the
forest service is required to annually report on the grant program to the
wildfire matters review committee.
The bill also creates the water storage tank wildfire mitigation cash
fund. Money in the fund is used to implement the grant program. The
general assembly is required to transfer $5 million into the fund beginning
September 1, 2021, through and including the 2024-25 fiscal year.

Bill: HB21-1043
Title: Study Underground Water Storage Maximum Beneficial Use
DescriptionConcerning a study of underground water storage to maximize the beneficial use of water within Colorado.
Summary

The bill directs the Colorado water conservation board (board), in
consultation with the state engineer, to contract with a Colorado
institution of higher education (institution) to conduct a study to:
  • Evaluate ways to maximize the beneficial use of water
within Colorado and implement the storage
recommendations of the Colorado water plan by storing

water underground when water is available;
  • Evaluate ways to minimize the amount of water that flows
out of Colorado to downstream states, without risking
noncompliance with applicable interstate compacts, United
States supreme court rulings, other federal law, decreed
absolute and conditional water rights, the prior
appropriation system, and Colorado's anti-speculation
doctrine;
  • Identify:
  • Specific aquifers that are hydrologically and legally
available to be used for underground storage and
subsequent beneficial use;
  • Sources of revenue that could be used to pay for the
underground storage projects; and
  • Planned potential or existing underground storage
projects that would meet the objectives identified in
the study;
  • Examine the role that various water entities might play in
financing and implementing underground storage projects;
and
  • Recommend legislative changes needed to implement
managed underground storage projects in the identified
aquifers.
The bill directs the board or the institution to submit a report
summarizing the results of the study to the water resources review
committee by August 1, 2022, which shall either have legislation drafted
to implement the study's recommendations or submit the study along with
its own recommendations to the committees of the general assembly with
jurisdiction over water resources by January 1, 2023.

Bill: HB21-1045
Title: Invasive Pest Control Administration
DescriptionConcerning the department of agriculture's authority to control pests.
Summary

The bill creates the emergency invasive-pest response fund (fund),
which is subject to annual appropriation. The commissioner of agriculture
(commissioner) may expend money from the fund to implement the bill
and emergency measures to control or eradicate invasive pests. The state
agricultural commission (commission) may request that, at the end of
each fiscal year, money in the plant health, pest control, and

environmental protection cash fund be transferred to the fund. The
commissioner is authorized to seek and expend gifts, grants, or donations
from private or public sources for the new fund.
The commissioner may:
  • Enter into an agreement with any person or local
government to provide pest control services. The
department of agriculture may provide pest control services
directly or through a local government and may require
remuneration for providing pest control services. The
remuneration is deposited in the fund.
  • Work cooperatively with the United States secretary of
agriculture to implement a joint phytosanitary program if
the program would economically or environmentally assist
with mitigating or eradicating the spread of a regulated
nonquarantine pest; and
  • Quarantine anything that harbors a pest if the pest has an
economically unacceptable impact and if the measures to
control the pest may achieve an acceptable level of official
control.
If the commissioner determines that a public nuisance creates an
unacceptable risk of spreading a pest, the commissioner may coordinate
with industry to, support local governments to, and make grants to take
emergency action to quarantine, control, or eradicate an invasive pest.
The commission may establish procedures for determining what
is a public nuisance.

Bill: HB21-1046
Title: Water Share Right Mutual Ditch Corporation
DescriptionConcerning the use of a water right obtained through a mutual ditch corporation.
Summary

For a mutual ditch corporation, the bill creates a presumption,
which may be changed by changing the corporation's articles of
incorporation or bylaws, that the shares of stock owned by a stockholder
in the corporation represent:
  • The right to use the water rights appropriated or purchased
by the corporation; and

  • Corresponding rights to divert and deliver the stockholder's
water rights through a ditch, canal, reservoir, or other
works.
The bill also authorizes these water rights to be limited to a pro
rata amount at times when shareholder demand exceeds available supply.
A mutual ditch corporation may operate using traditional ditch operating
practices.
The bill clarifies that:
  • When a shareholder is not using some of or all of the
available water under the shareholder's rights, the right to
use the water rights does not include the right to prevent
other stockholders from using any portion of the
corporation's water rights; and
  • The statutes covering ditch and reservoir companies do not
prevent a stockholder from changing the use of the
stockholder's shares or change the standards for water court
approval to change a water right.

Bill: HB21-1047
Title: County Commissioner Districts Gerrymandering
DescriptionConcerning the drawing of voting districts by county governments.
Summary

The bill establishes the process used by county commissioner
redistricting commissions (commissions) to divide counties that have any
number of their county commissioners not elected by the voters of the
whole county into county commissioner districts. In these counties, the
bill:
  • Requires the commissions to hold multiple hearings

throughout the relevant counties that are broadcast and
stored online and comply with state statutes regarding open
meetings;
  • Requires the commission to provide the opportunity for
public involvement by providing the ability to propose and
comment on maps and to testify at commission hearings
both in person and electronically;
  • Prohibits improper communication between a member of
the commission and the staff of the commission;
  • Mandates that paid lobbying of the commissions be
disclosed to the secretary of state by the lobbyist;
  • Establishes prioritized factors for the commissions to use
in drawing districts, including federal requirements, the
preservation of communities of interest and political
subdivisions, and maximizing the number of competitive
districts;
  • Prohibits the commissions from approving a map if it has
been drawn for the purpose of protecting one or more
incumbent members, or one or more declared candidates,
of the board of county commissioners, or any political
party, and codifies current federal law and related existing
federal requirements prohibiting maps drawn for the
purpose of or that results in the denial or abridgement of a
person's right to vote or electoral influence on account of
a person's race, ethnic origin, or membership in a protected
language group;
  • Requires the commission to approve a redistricting map
and specifies the date by which a final map must be
approved;
  • Specifies that the staff of each commission will draft a
preliminary redistricting map and up to 3 additional maps,
and, in the event of deadlock by a commission, creates a
process by which staff submit a final map to a panel of
district court judges for review based on specified criteria;
and
  • Requires judicial review of a commission-approved or
staff-submitted redistricting map, and limits district court
judicial panel review to whether a commission or the staff
committed an abuse of discretion.
The bill recommends that counties establish independent county
commissioner redistricting commissions and provides criteria to consider
when creating these independent commissions.
The bill aligns the redistricting population data used to establish
county commissioner districts with the redistricting population data used
to establish congressional districts, state house of representative districts,
and state senate districts.
The bill also requires that, in a county where any number of county
commissioners are not elected by the voters of the whole county and the
board of county commissioners refers a measure to the voters of the
county to change the method of electing county commissioners, the
referred measure must provide at least 2 different methods of electing
county commissioners.
Finally, the bill repeals anachronistic county precinct size rules and
allows county clerk and recorders to redraw precincts less often.

Bill: HB21-1056
Title: Cost Thresholds For Public Project Bidding Requirements
DescriptionConcerning public projects supervised by the department of transportation that are subject to the "Construction Bidding for Public Projects Act".
Summary

Under current law, the requirements of the Construction Bidding
for Public Projects Act (act) generally apply to a public project if the
cost of the project is reasonably expected to exceed $500,000 for any
fiscal year; except that a public project supervised by the department of
transportation (CDOT) is subject to the requirements of the act if the cost

of the project is reasonably expected to exceed $150,000 for any fiscal
year. The bill:
  • Repeals the lower cost amount for CDOT projects, which
means that the requirements of the act, including the
requirement that CDOT prepare a bid estimate when it
proposes to undertake a project itself rather than awarding
the project to a contractor through competitive bidding,
will apply to a CDOT project only if the cost of the project
is reasonably expected to exceed $500,000 for any fiscal
year; and
  • Increases from $50,000 to $100,000 the maximum cost for
a CDOT project that is exempt from transportation
commission approval.
The bill also limits the existing requirement that CDOT pay all employees
performing work on any public project local prevailing wages in
accordance with specified federal acts to projects that cost more than
$500,000.

Bill: HB21-1058
Title: Promoting Social Distancing In Marijuana Industry
DescriptionConcerning measures to promote social distancing for legal marijuana, and, in connection therewith, modifying the physical examination procedure to obtain a medical marijuana card and repealing the prohibition on selling retail marijuana products online and to a person not physically present in the retail marijuana store's licensed premises.
Summary


Under current law, a physician is required to conduct an in-person
physical examination of a person prior to certifying that the person would
benefit from medical marijuana. The bill permits a physician to treat,
counsel, and conduct appropriate personal physical examinations, in
person or remotely via telephone or video conference, to establish a bona
fide physician-patient relationship with a patient seeking a medical
marijuana card.
Under current law, retail marijuana stores are prohibited from
selling retail marijuana and retail marijuana products online and to a

Title: Online Student Protections
DescriptionConcerning protections for students who participate in online instruction.
Summary

(local education provider) provides educational programming via online
instruction to a student (online student), the bill prohibits the local

online student applies to suspensions and expulsions that occur on or after
March 23, 2020.

Bill: HB21-1061
Title: Residential Land Property Tax Classification
DescriptionConcerning the definition of residential land for the purpose of property tax classification.
Summary

The bill modifies the definition of the term residential land for
the purpose of property tax classification. Currently, a parcel of land
without a residential improvement is classified as residential land if it is
contiguous with a parcel of land under common ownership upon which
a residential improvement is located and if it is used as a unit in
conjunction with the residential improvements located thereon. The bill

modifies classification for this type of parcel by:
  • Requiring the parcel to have the identical owner as the
adjacent parcel based on the record title;
  • Requiring the parcel to have a related improvement that is
essential to the use of a residential improvement located on
the identically owned contiguous residential land; and
  • Specifying that contiguity in this instance is not interrupted
by an intervening local service street, alley, or common
element in a common-interest community.
The bill also removes from the definition parcels of land in a
residential subdivision, the exclusive use of which land is established by
the ownership of such residential improvements.

Bill: HB21-1062
Title: Deregulation Direct Sale Of Animal Shares
DescriptionConcerning the sale of animals for consumption to informed end consumers in a manner that exempts the sale from certain laws.
Summary

Section 1 of the bill allows a person to sell, without licensure,
regulation, or inspection by a public health agency, an animal or shares
of the meat of an animal for future delivery if:
  • At the point of sale, the person displays a conspicuous
disclaimer or gives the customer a document with a

disclaimer indicating that the seller is not subject to
licensure and the animal or meat is not subject to state
regulation or inspection by a public health agency and that
the animal or meat is not intended for resale; and
  • The animal or meat is delivered directly from the seller to
an informed end consumer and is sold only in Colorado and
the sale does not involve interstate commerce.
A person who makes a purchase under the bill is prohibited from
reselling the animal or animal share. The bill clarifies that the seller is not
liable in a civil action for damages caused by inadequately cooking or
improperly preparing the animal or animal share.
Section 2 limits the number of brand inspections for an animal
share sale to a single inspection before slaughter. Each purchaser must be
listed on the inspection certificate. The state board of stock inspection
commissioners will promulgate rules establishing procedures for a single
inspection.

Bill: HB21-1063
Title: Model Law Credit Extraterritorial Reinsurance
DescriptionConcerning additional means by which credit for reinsurance may be allowed to a domestic ceding insurer.
Summary

Federal law preempts the extraterritorial application of state credit
for reinsurance law but permits a state to enact reinsurance collateral
reforms on an individual basis if the state is accredited. The bill enacts a
model law adopted by the National Association of Insurance
Commissioners (NAIC), which is necessary to maintain the continued

accreditation of the Colorado division of insurance with the NAIC and
makes Colorado's reinsurance statutes substantially similar to those found
in other states. The model law specifies the grounds upon which a
domestic insurer can get credit in Colorado for reinsurance provided by
an assuming insurer that is domiciled in an extraterritorial jurisdiction and
thereby avoids federal preemption that would otherwise occur by 2022.

Bill: HB21-1064
Title: Update Processes Juvenile Sex Offender Registry
DescriptionConcerning the implementation of recommendations from the legislative oversight committee concerning the treatment of persons with mental health disorders in the criminal and juvenile justice systems regarding juveniles who have committed sex offenses, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Summary

The bill implements various recommendations of the legislative
oversight committee concerning the treatment of persons with mental

health disorders in the criminal and juvenile justice systems regarding
juveniles who have committed sex offenses, including:
  • Specifying that if a juvenile who is moving to Colorado
would be otherwise required to register on Colorado's sex
offender registry (registry) but the juvenile's duty to register
in another state has been terminated by a court order, then
the juvenile is not required to register or petition the court
for removal from the registry;
  • Expanding judicial discretion at the time of sentencing to
exempt from registration or from requiring juveniles to
register for all first offense registerable juvenile sex crimes
if a sex offender management board evaluator recommends
exemption and the juvenile is otherwise statutorily eligible;
  • Adding language to adult or juvenile provisions that
currently reference only crimes defined as unlawful sexual
behavior to also include convictions and adjudications for
nonsexual crimes where there has been, pursuant to statute,
a judicial finding of an underlying factual basis involving
unlawful sexual behavior;
  • Adding a requirement for the court to send notice before
the end of each juvenile's sentence concerning a juvenile's
duty to register and set a hearing to consider the juvenile's
ongoing duty to register;
  • Adding language that if a person is required to register due
to an adjudication or disposition as a juvenile, the duty to
register automatically terminates either when the person
reaches 25 years of age or 7 years from the date the
juvenile was required to register, whichever occurs later;
  • Adding language that if a person whose duty to register has
automatically terminated either attempts to register or
inquires with local law enforcement as to whether the duty
to register has automatically terminated, local law
enforcement shall advise the person that the person's duty
to register terminated, remove the person from any local
law enforcement registry, and notify the Colorado bureau
of investigation (CBI) that the person's duty to register has
terminated. Local law enforcement or the CBI may charge
a fee, not to exceed $15, to determine whether a person's
duty to register has terminated.
  • Allowing a person whose duty to register arose from an
adjudication or disposition as a juvenile, and whose duty to
register automatically terminated when the person reached
25 years of age or 7 years had passed from the date the
person was required to register, whichever was later, but
the person's name has not already been removed from the
sex offender registry, to petition for an order to remove the
person's name from the sex offender registry;
  • Changing the current law that allows the Colorado bureau
of investigation (CBI) to inform a requesting party if a
person is on the registry so that the CBI may release
information about a juvenile only under certain restrictions;
  • Requiring the CBI to collect data on the number of times
information is requested and released concerning juveniles
on the registry;
  • Creating a new unclassified misdemeanor for members of
the public who submit a false statement to the CBI for
purposes of obtaining juvenile registry information or who
use such information in a prohibited manner;
  • Updating current law regarding the posting of information
on the registry to the internet to specifically exclude
juveniles;
  • Clarifying that a local law enforcement agency may not
release or post on its website information regarding
juveniles on the registry;
  • Changing current law that requires lifetime registration for
an adult who has more than one adjudication as a juvenile
so that juvenile adjudications alone may not trigger
mandatory lifetime registration; and
  • Updating language in the Colorado Crime Victim Rights
Act to clarify victim rights when a petition or motion is
made to terminate sex offender registration.

Title: Veterans' Hiring Preference
DescriptionConcerning the authority of a private employer to adopt a veterans' preference employment policy when hiring new employees.
Summary

The bill creates a statutory basis to allow a private employer to
give preference to a veteran of the armed forces or the National Guard
and the spouse of a disabled veteran or a service member killed in the line
of duty when hiring a new employee, as long as the veteran or the spouse
is as qualified as other applicants for employment. The bill allows a

private employer's veterans' preference employment policy to also include
the preferential hiring of veterans who have been discharged from active
duty within the last 10 years, as determined by the discharge date. The bill
clarifies that a private employer that adopts a program that gives
preferences to veterans or their spouses is not committing a
discriminatory or unfair labor practice.

Title: Ranked Choice Voting In Nonpartisan Elections
DescriptionConcerning the use of ranked choice voting in nonpartisan elections, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Summary

Beginning in 2023, the bill allows a municipality to refer a
municipal election using instant runoff voting to be conducted as part of
a coordinated election. The secretary of state is required to promulgate
rules establishing the minimum system requirements and specifications
for a voting system to be used in an election using instant runoff voting
by March 31, 2022. After March 31, 2022, a system that has been tested

and satisfies the standards promulgated by the secretary of state may be
submitted for certification for use in an election using instant runoff
voting. If the secretary of state certifies a system, the secretary is required
to negotiate and purchase, if possible, a single annual statewide license
with the provider to allow each county that uses the voting system to
conduct elections using instant runoff voting.
On and after January 1, 2023, a statutory city or town or home rule
municipality that has taken formal action to conduct an election using
instant runoff voting may refer the election to be conducted as part of a
coordinated election by providing written notice to the county clerk and
recorder. If the county uses a voting system that is certified for use in an
election using instant runoff voting, the county clerk and recorder must
conduct the election as part of the coordinated election. The municipality
referring the election is responsible for any reasonable additional costs the
county incurs as a result of conducting an instant runoff voting election.
If the referring municipality is located in more than one county, the
counties are required to conduct the election using instant runoff voting
only if each county receives timely notice, each county uses a voting
system certified for such use, and the data from all the counties' voting
systems can be tabulated together in accordance with rules promulgated
by the secretary of state for conducting instant runoff elections across
multiple counties. The counties and the municipality are required to enter
into an agreement for the conduct of the election, which must specify the
procedures for the county canvass boards to canvass the election.
For any instant runoff voting election conducted as part of a
coordinated election, the secretary of state is the designated election
official responsible for tabulating and reporting the results. The secretary
of state is required, by December 31, 2022, to promulgate rules related to
instant runoff voting elections including the procedures for conducting
logic and accuracy tests and risk limiting audits, and for the tabulation,
reporting, and canvassing of results.

Title: Modify Property Tax Exemption For Veterans With Disabilities
DescriptionConcerning the property tax exemption for veterans with a disability, and, in connection therewith, increasing the maximum amount of actual value of the owner-occupied primary residence of a qualifying veteran with a disability that is partly exempt from property taxation.
Summary

The Colorado constitution allows a veteran who has a

service-connected disability rated as a 100% permanent disability to claim
a property tax exemption for 50% of the first $200,000 of actual value of
the veteran's owner-occupied primary residence. The general assembly
may enact legislation to raise or lower the $200,000 actual value limit but
the 100% permanent disability requirement can only be changed through
a constitutional amendment.
For property tax years commencing on and after January 1, 2021,
the bill increases from $200,000 to $300,000 the maximum amount of
actual value of the owner-occupied primary residence of an eligible
veteran with a disability of which 50% is exempt from property taxation.
If at the 2022 general election the voters of the state approve a proposed
constitutional amendment to make more veterans eligible for the
exemption by allowing veterans who have a service-connected disability
rated as a 50% or greater to claim the exemption, the bill makes a
conforming statutory amendment to reflect the expansion of the
exemption for property tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2023.

Bill: HB21-1082
Title: Gun Transfer Background Check Permit Exemption
DescriptionConcerning permitting presentation of a concealed carry permit as an alternative to a background check required for a firearms transfer and, in connection therewith, prohibiting a sheriff from issuing a concealed carry permit without the results of a background check.
Summary

Federal law requires federally licensed firearms dealers to conduct

background checks of prospective transferees prior to transferring a
firearm by contacting the national instant criminal background check
system (NICS). A dealer is not required to conduct a NICS background
check of a prospective transferee if the transferee presents a state license
or permit that is recognized by the federal bureau of alcohol, tobacco,
firearms, and explosives (ATF) as an alternative to a NICS background
check. In order to be eligible for recognition, a permit must have been
issued within 5 years before the transfer and the state must have
completed a NICS background check prior to issuing the permit.
The bill makes a Colorado-issued permit to carry a concealed
handgun eligible for recognition as an alternative to a NICS background
check by requiring a sheriff to receive the results of a background check
prior to issuing or renewing the permit. The Colorado attorney general is
required to contact the ATF to request that a Colorado-issued permit
qualifies as an alternative to the federal background check requirement.
Upon approval by the ATF, a concealed carry permit issued after the
effective date of the bill can be used to satisfy a background check
required by state or federal law. A permit issued in another state that is
otherwise recognized in Colorado is not valid as a substitute for a
background check.
A prospective transferee who presents a permit as an alternative to
a background check must attest, in writing, that the person has not, since
the issuance of the permit, been convicted of a crime of domestic violence
or been treated for a mental health condition, or is otherwise ineligible to
possess a firearm pursuant to state or federal law.

Title: Sentencing Juveniles Transferred To Adult Court
DescriptionConcerning sentencing parity for juveniles convicted as adults following the transfer of charges with juveniles convicted as adults following the direct filing of charges.
Summary

Under current law, a juvenile convicted as an adult following the

sentencing for crimes of violence. The bill adds language to the juvenile
transfer statute to mirror the language currently found in the juvenile
direct file statutes, so a juvenile transferred to adult court is subject to the
same sentencing provisions as a juvenile who is in adult court based on
a direct file.

Bill: HB21-1094
Title: Foster Youth In Transition Program
DescriptionConcerning the transition of youth in Colorado's foster care system to successful adulthood.
Summary

The bill creates the foster youth in transition program (transition
program) in the state department of human services (state department) to
be implemented in county departments of human or social services
(county departments) throughout the state. The purpose of the transition
program is to allow foster youth who meet eligibility criteria to
voluntarily continue to receive certain child welfare services (services) up

until the last day of the month of the youth's twenty-first birthday, or such
greater age of foster care eligibility as required by federal law. Services
provided through the transition program must be client-directed and
developmentally appropriate as set forth in and agreed to through a
voluntary services agreement (agreement) developed and entered into
between the youth and county department.
The bill sets forth the eligibility criteria a youth must meet in order
to voluntarily participate in the transition program. A youth who is no
longer under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court and thinks he or she is
eligible for the transition program may make a written request to the
juvenile court (court) or county department where the youth resides. The
county department shall make a determination of eligibility. If the youth
is eligible, the county department shall explain the requirements and
benefits of the transition program to the youth and, with the youth,
develop an agreement that must be provided to the juvenile court together
with a petition to renew jurisdiction with the juvenile court.
The bill describes the services and supports that will be made
available to a youth through the transition program, including assistance
with enrolling in medicaid; assistance with securing appropriate housing;
and providing case management services, such as developing a roadmap
to success, obtaining employment, obtaining critical documents and
records, and accessing information about relatives and siblings, if
available and appropriate.
The bill sets forth the form and content required for a petition to
bring the youth under the juvenile court's jurisdiction. Upon receipt of
informed, written consent of the youth, a person may be named as a
special respondent in a case brought pursuant to the transition program.
A youth participating in the transition program must be appointed
counsel from a list of attorneys approved by the office of the child's
representative. If the youth is 18 years of age or older and, due to
diminished capacity, needs a guardian ad litem, one may also be
appointed.
Procedures for emancipation discharge and transition hearings
(hearing) are described in the bill, including a requirement to have a
personalized emancipation transition plan finalized for the youth no more
than 90 days prior to a hearing. The county department shall file a report
with the court at least 7 days prior to a transition hearing that includes
relevant details concerning a youth's status and plans to either emancipate
or enter the youth in transition program. With the youth's consent and in
certain circumstances, the court may continue a transition hearing for up
to 119 days.
The court shall hold periodic reviews of the youth's case at least
every 6 months to ensure that the transition program is providing the
youth with the necessary services to help the youth move toward
permanency and a successful transition to adulthood. The bill sets forth
procedures for the periodic reviews. The bill grants continuing
jurisdiction in a youth's case to the juvenile court under certain situations.
The bill creates the foster youth successful transition to adulthood
grant program (grant program) and associated advisory board (advisory
board). The purpose of the grant program is to support eligible youth to
successful transition into adulthood. Youth are eligible for services from
recipients of grants from the grant program if they are between the ages
of 18 and 23, were in foster care or adjudicated dependent and neglected,
and are participating voluntarily. The advisory board shall meet at least
2 times per year, and the bill outlines membership.
The state department is directed to promulgate rules for the
implementation of the transition program.
The bill makes conforming amendments.

Bill: HB21-1095
Title: 811 Locate Exemption For County Road Maintenance
DescriptionConcerning excavation notification requirements for underground facility location in connection with county road maintenance.
Summary

Current law requires an individual or entity to notify the statewide
notification association of all owners and operators of underground
facilities of its intent to engage in excavation so that any underground
facilities that the excavation might affect, such as water and sewer pipes,
gas lines, and electric or cable lines, can be located and marked before
excavation begins. Underground facilities are often located beneath
county gravel and dirt roads, normally at a depth of at least 18 inches
below the road surface. Counties maintain the profile and surface
condition of such county roads and county road rights-of-way by
engaging in routine and emergency maintenance activities that do not
disturb more than 6 inches in depth. These maintenance activities
currently trigger the excavation notification requirement, and the related
requirement that the location of underground facilities be marked, even
though they occur above the levels where underground facilities are
located. To prevent such activities from triggering the excavation
notification requirement, the bill specifies that excavation does not
include routine or emergency maintenance of right-of-way on
county-owned gravel or dirt roads performed by county employees that:
  • Does not lower the existing grade or elevation of the road,
shoulder, and ditches; and
  • Does not disturb more than 6 inches in depth during
maintenance operations.

Bill: HB21-1099
Title: Policies And Procedures To Identify Domestic Abuse
DescriptionConcerning authorization to implement best practices for child welfare caseworkers to recognize domestic abuse, and, in connection therewith, addressing domestic abuse as a form of child abuse or neglect, and making an appropriation.
Summary

Current law does not expressly recognize domestic abuse as a form
of child abuse or neglect. The bill adds domestic abuse, when a child's
parent, legal guardian, or custodian exposes a child to their perpetration

Under current law, child welfare caseworkers do not have
established training policies or assessment procedures to identify and
assess situations when a child's parent, legal guardian, or custodian
exposes a child to their perpetration of domestic abuse. The bill requires
the department of human services to promulgate rules to implement
assessment policies, procedures, and training for child welfare
caseworkers to recognize and assess situations when a child's parent, legal
guardian, or custodian exposes a child to their perpetration of domestic
abuse.

Bill: HB21-1101
Title: Preserving Family Relationships In Child Placement
DescriptionConcerning preserving familial connections in actions initiated pursuant to the children's code.
Summary

With respect to a hearing in dependency and neglect for a child
under 6 years of age, the bill states that a court may find good cause for
granting a delay or continuance if there is evidence that in-person
visitation or services were significantly delayed or interrupted by a public
health emergency.
When a child is taken into the custody of a county department of

human or social services (county department) for allegations of neglect
or for other reasons, the bill requires the court to enter temporary
visitation orders with the child's parent if such orders are in the child's
best interests. The bill sets forth the contents of those orders, including
the minimum frequency and level of supervision of the visits. The court
shall order ongoing, in-person visitation unless it finds that in-person
visitation would endanger the child's health or welfare. Within 30 days
after the initial hearing, the county department shall make
recommendations to the court concerning ongoing visitation between the
parent and child and between the child and the child's siblings. A parent
is entitled to a hearing prior to an ongoing reduction in, suspension of, or
increase in the level of supervision, including a change from in-person
visitation to virtual visitation. The bill requires the court to enter visitation
orders consistent with the bill in various phases of the court proceedings.
The bill sets forth requirements for an open adoption in Colorado,
including provisions for entering into post-adoption contact agreements
between a child and the child's birth parent or parents, a birth relative, or
an Indian tribe if the child is a member. A post-adoption contact
agreement may include provisions for contact, visitation, or the exchange
of information. If a child is 12 years of age or older, the court shall not
order a post-adoption contact agreement unless the child consents to all
terms of the contact agreement. The bill includes provisions for the
enforcement, modification, and termination of a post-adoption contact
agreement.

Bill: HB21-1105
Title: Low-income Utility Payment Assistance Contributions
DescriptionConcerning utility customers' financial contributions for low-income utility assistance.
Summary

Section 1 of the bill removes the low-income energy assistance
program administered by Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) from the
grant program reserve funded by tier 2 severance tax operational fund
money.
Section 2 clarifies that the definition of a low-income utility
customer, with regard to the public utilities commission's (PUC)

consideration of a preference or advantage that a gas or electric utility
grants a low-income utility customer, means a utility customer who meets
the Colorado department of human services' income eligibility criteria.
Sections 3 and 4 make modifications to the legislative commission
on low-income energy assistance, wherein section 3 expands the
commission's scope to include water utility assistance and section 4
reduces the composition of the commission from 11 members to 7
members. Section 4 also requires the commission to:
  • Advise the Colorado energy office (office) on grants
awarded from the federal department of energy regarding
the office's weatherization assistance program;
  • Advise water utilities that provide their customers with
utility assistance and efficiency programs; and
  • Review EOC's annual budget that it submits to the PUC
regarding the use of funding for utility bill payment
assistance.
Sections 5, 6, and 8 to 10 concern the creation of an energy
assistance system benefit charge, which is a mandatory monthly charge
that investor-owned electric and gas utilities are required to collect from
their customers. The initial amount of the charge per customer is $1 for
electric service provided and $1 for natural gas service provided, but the
PUC may adopt rules to modify the amount of the charge, so long as the
charge is at least $1 per service provided. Investor-owned utilities are
required to remit the charges collected to EOC to help finance the direct
utility bill payment assistance and energy retrofit programs that EOC
administers for low-income households.
Sections 7 and 11 concern voluntary, opt-in charges that a water
utility may offer its customers to help finance the water utility bill
payment assistance program that EOC administers. Alternatively, a water
utility may implement its own water utility bill payment assistance
program.
Section 12 requires EOC and the office, when installing energy
retrofits for low-income households, to prioritize customer savings,
emission reductions, and improving indoor air quality.
Section 13 governs reporting requirements for EOC regarding the
mandatory monthly energy assistance system benefit charge and
voluntary, opt-in monthly water utility bill payment assistance collections.
Sections 14 to 17 make conforming amendments.

Bill: HB21-1106
Title: Safe Storage Of Firearms
DescriptionConcerning measures to secure firearms to prevent use by persons not lawfully permitted to possess firearms.
Summary

The bill requires that firearms be responsibly and securely stored
when they are not in use to prevent access by unsupervised juveniles and
other unauthorized users. The bill creates the offense of unlawful storage
of a firearm if a person stores a firearm in a manner that the person
knows, or should know:
  • That a juvenile can gain access to the firearm without the

permission of the juvenile's parent or guardian; or
  • A resident of the premises is ineligible to possess a firearm
under state or federal law.
Unlawful storage of a firearm is a class 2 misdemeanor.
The bill requires licensed gun dealers to provide with each firearm,
at the time of a firearm sale or transfer, a locking device capable of
securing the firearm. Transferring a firearm without a locking device is
an unclassified misdemeanor punishable by a maximum $500 fine.
The bill requires the state court administrator to annually report to
the general assembly about the number of charges related to unsafe
firearms storage and the disposition of those charges.
The bill requires the office of suicide prevention within the
department of public health and environment (department) to include on
its website, and in materials provided to firearms-related businesses and
health care providers, information about the offense of unlawful storage
of a firearm, penalties for providing a handgun to a juvenile or allowing
a juvenile to possess a firearm, and the requirement that gun dealers
provide a locking device with each firearm transferred. Subject to
available money, the department is required to develop and implement a
firearms safe storage education campaign to educate the public about the
safe storage of firearms and state requirements related to firearms safety
and storage.

Title: Protections For Public Health Department Workers
DescriptionConcerning protections for certain public health workers.
Summary

Under current law, it is unlawful for a person to make available on
the internet personal information of a law enforcement official (official)
or a human services worker (worker), or the official's or worker's family,
if the dissemination of the personal information poses an imminent and
serious threat to the official's or worker's safety or the safety of the
official's or worker's family. A violation of this law is a class 1
misdemeanor.
Further, a worker meeting certain requirements specified in statute

may submit a written request to a state or local government official to

internet.
The bill adds the same protections for public health workers,
including employees, contractors, or employees of contractors of the
department of public health and environment, or of county or district
public health agencies, who are engaged in public health duties, and for
members of county or district boards of health, other than elected county

Bill: HB21-1109
Title: Broadband Board Changes To Expand Broadband Service
DescriptionConcerning the broadband deployment board, and, in connection therewith, modifying the composition of the board, requiring the board to develop a request for proposal process for deploying broadband into critically unserved areas in the state, and requiring the board to give additional consideration to proposed projects that would include discounted service for low-income households.
Summary

Sections 1 and 3 of the bill exempt certain mapping data
submitted to the office of information technology (office) from public
disclosure under the Colorado Open Records Act.
Section 2 adds a definition of critically unserved, which means
a household or area that lies outside municipal boundaries and lacks
access to at least one provider of nonsatellite broadband service delivered
at measurable speeds of at least 10 megabits per second downstream and
one megabit per second upstream, and a definition of office of
information technology.
Section 3 reduces the membership of the broadband deployment
board (board) in the department of regulatory agencies from 16 members
to 11 members.
The board is required to develop a request for proposal process
through which the board will solicit bids for proposed projects to serve
areas of the state that the office has determined lack access to broadband
service at measurable speeds of at least 10 megabits per second
downstream and one megabit per second upstream. The board is required
to reserve at least 75% of the money from the high cost support
mechanism that is allocated for broadband deployment to award grants to
proposed projects solicited through the request for proposal process.
Section 3 also directs the board to:
  • Require an applicant or appellant to submit a speed test
performed on an incumbent provider's network and
conducted in accordance with industry-standard speed-test
protocols;
  • Give additional consideration to proposed projects that
would give discounted service for low-income households;
  • Contractually require an applicant receiving a grant award
to:
  • Report annually on the number of homes and
businesses served by the grant-supported broadband
network, the number of homes and businesses
expected to be served in the following year, and the
speeds, rates, and services offered to customers
through the grant-supported broadband network;
and
  • Provide third-party certification, after the grant
money has been fully expended, that the project
meets the original design of, and provides the
measurable speeds, rates, and services set forth in,
the application.
  • Require an applicant or appellant to submit to the office, in
a form and manner determined by the office, certain
granular mapping data.
Section 4 repeals the current board composition requirements on
August 31, 2021.

Bill: HB21-1113
Title: Income Tax Deduction For Mil Retirement Benefits
DescriptionConcerning the income tax deduction for military retirement benefits.
Summary

The starting point for determining state income tax liability is
federal taxable income. This number is adjusted for additions and
subtractions (deductions) that are used to determine Colorado taxable
income, which amount is multiplied by the state's income tax rate.
Income earned from pensions or annuities, including military
retirement benefits, can be considered income for purposes of the state's

income tax. In Colorado, current law provides an income tax deduction
that subtracts from federal taxable income amounts received from
pensions or annuities for individuals who are 55 years or older. For
individuals who are 55 to 64, that benefit is capped at $20,000 per income
tax year. For individuals who are 65 or older, that benefit is capped at
$24,000 per income tax year. This existing benefit applies to pensions or
annuities received, among other things, from service in the uniformed
services of the United States. The bill does not change this current tax
benefit.
In 2018, the general assembly enacted a separate temporary
income tax deduction through the income tax year commencing on or
after January 1, 2023, that subtracts from federal taxable income amounts
received from military retirement benefits for individuals who are under
55 years old. This additional deduction for military retirements benefits
is currently capped as follows:
  • $7,500 for the income tax year commencing on or after
January 1, 2020, but before January 1, 2021;
  • $10,000 for the income tax year commencing on or after
January 1, 2021, but before January 1, 2022; and
  • $15,000 for income tax years commencing on or after
January 1, 2022, but before January 1, 2024.
The bill makes modifications to the existing tax deduction for
military retirement benefits for individuals who are under 55 years old by:
  • Extending the number of years the temporary income tax
deduction is available by 10 years; and
  • Increasing the maximum benefit to $20,000 for income tax
years commencing January 1, 2023, and for each income
tax year thereafter.

that violates the Act;
  • Approve training programs that are required to meet the
standards for licensure as a protection guard or an armed

A person may use the titles of security guard, protection guard,
or armed guard only if the person is licensed. A person who engages in
the occupation of being a guard without the required license or who
employs a guard without a registration commits a class 2 misdemeanor
for the first offense and a class 6 felony for the second or subsequent
offense. Peace officers are exempt from the licensing requirements.
To be issued a license, a person must apply, pay a fee, prove
qualifications as required in the Act, and submit to a criminal history
background check. Upon being licensed, the person is given a license
document that contains the guard's photograph and other relevant
information.
Security guards are prohibited from carrying a firearm and using
physical force to secure or protect people or property. To be qualified for
a security guard license, a person must not have a conviction within the
last 10 years for certain crimes that relate to violence or unlawful sexual
behavior or for attempting or conspiring to commit these types of crimes.
Protection guards are prohibited from carrying a firearm. To be
qualified for a protection guard license, a person must:
  • Not have a conviction, within the last 10 years, for the
same type of crimes described for security guards; and
  • Have successfully completed 80 hours of training that is
approved by rule and covers the obligations and restrictions
imposed on a protection guard by the Act.
To be qualified for an armed guard license, a person must:
  • Have a concealed carry permit for firearms;
  • Not have a conviction, within the last 10 years, for the
same type of crimes described for security guards;
  • Have successfully completed 80 hours of training that is
approved by rule and covers the obligations and restrictions
imposed on an armed guard by the Act; and
  • Have completed firearms training that is substantially
equivalent to the training required to be certified as a peace
officer.
To renew a protection guard license or armed guard license, the
license holder must successfully complete 8 hours of training approved
by the director by rule.
Within 30 days after a felony or misdemeanor conviction for
certain listed crimes, which are broader than the crimes that disqualify a
person to be a guard because the crimes cover certain property offenses
and offenses involving fraud, a guard must report the conviction to the
director. Within 30 days after terminating the employment of a guard for
misconduct, a guard employer must report the termination and the
misconduct that is the basis for the termination to the director. Within 30
days after using physical force to protect a person or property, a guard and
the guard's employer must report the use of physical force to the director.
The report must include the demographic information, as required by rule,
of the guard using physical force and of the individual subjected to the
physical force.
The director will maintain a database of licensed guards. The
database contains the name of each licensee and the following
information about each licensee:
  • Each criminal conviction of the type the guard must report;
and
  • Each termination of employment for misconduct and the
misconduct.
The director will make the database available, including online through
the director's website, to a registered guard employer.
The Act establishes standards of conduct for guards that include
obeying the Act and rules promulgated under the Act and the following
standards:
  • All guards must:
  • Wear a uniform unless the guard has been issued a
plainclothes permit;
  • Carry the guard's license;
  • Use a vehicle that complies with the marking,
design, and equipment rules promulgated by the
director; and
  • Not use a canine to detect explosive devices unless
the canine is certified by a nationally recognized
training association or a law enforcement agency,
and the guard handling the canine is one of the
canine's primary handlers.
  • An armed guard must wear a form of identification on the
outermost part of the armed guard's uniform.
The director sets standards for issuing a plainclothes permit.
The director may discipline each type of guard or a guard employer
for:
  • Fraud or intentional misrepresentation in obtaining or
attempting to obtain, reinstate, or renew a license;
  • Violating a currently valid order of the director;
  • Violating the Act or a rule promulgated under the Act;
  • Being convicted of a felony when acting within the course
and scope of the guard's duties;
  • Using false advertising or intentionally misleading
advertising;
  • Failing to meet the mentioned standards of practice;
  • Failing to pay a fine assessed by the director; and
  • Using deadly force or authorizing the use of deadly force
against any individual unless the use of deadly force is
necessary to prevent an immediate risk of serious physical
harm to an individual.
The director may discipline or require additional training of:
  • A security guard for using unlawful physical force on
another person;
  • A protection guard or armed guard for:
  • Failing to use a body camera;
  • Using physical force that is prohibited for peace
officers to use; or
  • Being convicted of a crime that would disqualify the
protection guard or armed guard from being issued
a license; and
  • A guard employer for:
  • Authorizing a guard to take an action that is a
ground for discipline;
  • Failing to ensure that protection guards and armed
guards use body cameras; or
  • Failing to make a required report.
The director may adopt rules establishing fines that the director
may impose on a licensee for violating the Act or rules under the Act,
with a minimum fine of not less than $50 and a maximum fine of not
more than $5,000 per violation.
In accordance with the sunset law, the Act will repeal on
September 1, 2031. Before the repeal, the Act is scheduled for review by
the department of regulatory agencies.

Bill: HB21-1121
Title: Residential Tenancy Procedures
DescriptionConcerning protections for residential tenants related to actions by landlords.
Summary

Under existing law, certain residential landlords must give 10 days'
notice to tenants prior to starting eviction proceedings for failure to pay
rent or for a first or subsequent violation of any other condition or
covenant other than a substantial violation. The bill requires landlords to
give 14 days' notice in those situations.
Under existing law, the clerk of the court or the attorney for the

plaintiff may issue a summons to a defendant in an eviction action. The
bill requires that the clerk of the court issue the summons in a residential
eviction action. The bill extends the period for which the summons must
be issued from 7 days before the court appearance to 14 days before the
court appearance.
Under existing law, in certain circumstances, a person may serve
a notice to quit or summons to the tenant by posting a copy of the notice
or summons and the complaint in a conspicuous place upon the premises
and a person may serve a notice to quit by leaving it with a member of the
tenant's family who is at least 15 years old. The bill removes those
provisions for service in residential tenancy actions and requires that the
notice to quit or summons be served in the same manner as any other civil
action.
Under existing law, if a landlord wins judgment in an eviction
action, the court cannot issue a writ of restitution, which directs the
county sheriff to assist the landlord in removing the tenant, until 48 hours
after judgment. The bill extends the period for residential evictions to 14
days after judgment.
The bill prohibits residential landlords from increasing rent more
than one time in a 12-month period of tenancy.
The bill extends the notice period for nonpayment of rent for a
home owner in a mobile home park from 10 days to 14 days.
Under existing law, for a tenancy of one month or longer but less
than 6 months in which there is no written agreement between the
landlord and tenant, a landlord must give 21 days' written notice to the
tenant prior to increasing the rent. For a residential tenancy, the bill
extends the notice period to 60 days and makes it apply to a tenancy of
any duration without a written agreement. The bill prohibits a landlord
from terminating a residential tenancy in which there is no written
agreement with the primary purpose of increasing a tenant's rent without
providing 60 days' notice.

Bill: HB21-1122
Title: First Responder Interactions Persons With Disabilities
DescriptionConcerning establishing a commission to improve first responder interactions with persons with disabilities, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
Summary

The bill establishes the commission on improving first responder
interactions with persons with disabilities (commission) in the attorney
general's office. The commission is comprised of 10 members, including
2 persons with a disability, 2 parents of a child with a disability, 2 first
responders, 2 representatives from advocacy organizations, the
vice-chairperson of the peace officer standards and training board

(P.O.S.T. board), and a member of the P.O.S.T. board's curriculum
subject matter expert committee.
After reviewing the existing Colorado peace officer training and
existing available curriculum, the commission must recommend to the
P.O.S.T. board a curriculum for peace officer training concerning
interactions with persons with disabilities. Subject to available
appropriations, the P.O.S.T. board must implement the recommended
curriculum by July 1, 2022. The commission is required to review
implementation of the curriculum and may recommend changes that the
P.O.S.T. board may adopt.
The commission is repealed on December 31, 2023, but prior to its
repeal the attorney general may recommend continuation of the
commission.
The bill requires the fire service training and certification advisory
board to advise the director of the division of fire prevention and control
on whether to include the commission's curriculum or similar curriculum
in the fire service education and training program. The Colorado
department of public health and environment is required to consider
including the commission's curriculum in training for personnel who
routinely respond to emergencies.

Bill: HB21-1123
Title: CAPS Checks For Substantiated Mistreatment Of Adult
DescriptionConcerning a CAPS check for substantiated cases of mistreatment of an at-risk adult.
Summary

Legislative Audit Committee. The bill authorizes the department
of human services (state department) to disclose the results of a CAPS
check without a court order to:
  • The department of regulatory agencies (DORA) for the
purpose of a regulatory investigation; or
  • The court if an individual is petitioning the court for

conservatorship or guardianship of an at-risk adult.
The bill requires an employer and an employee to provide, upon
request of the county department of human or social services and for the
purposes of an investigation into an allegation of mistreatment, access to
the professional license number issued by DORA for the employee who,
as a result of the investigation, is substantiated in a case of mistreatment
of an at-risk adult.
Current law requires the state department to promulgate rules to
establish a process at the state level by which a person who is
substantiated in a case of mistreatment of an at-risk adult may appeal the
finding to the state department. The bill requires the state department to
promulgate rules to address the process to share information on the
outcome of an appeal with DORA if DORA requests information for the
purpose of a regulatory investigation. Appeal information is confidential
and used only for the regulatory investigation.
Beginning January 1, 2022, prior to appointing a person as a
conservator or guardian of an at-risk adult, the court that receives a filing
of a petition for conservatorship or guardianship shall request a CAPS
check by the state department, and the state department shall provide the
results of a CAPS check to the court, to determine if the person is
substantiated in a case of mistreatment of an at-risk adult.
The bill requires the state department to promulgate rules that
address:
  • The process for the state department to notify DORA when
a professional regulated by DORA is substantiated in a case
of mistreatment of an at-risk adult; and
  • The information that will be made available to DORA for
the purpose of conducting a regulatory investigation.
A person who may be appointed as a conservator or guardian of an
at-risk adult who knowingly provides inaccurate information to the court
for a CAPS check commits a class 1 misdemeanor.
Beginning January 1, 2022, prior to appointing a person as a
conservator or guardian of an at-risk adult, the court shall request a CAPS
check by the state department to determine if the person is substantiated
in a case of mistreatment of an at-risk adult. Within 7 calendar days after
the date of the court's request, if the person has been substantiated in a
case of mistreatment of an at-risk adult, the state department shall provide
the court with information concerning the mistreatment, unless the
finding was expunged through a successful appeal to the state department.
The bill requires the state department to notify DORA within 10
calendar days after a substantiated finding of mistreatment by a
professional regulated by DORA. Any information provided to DORA is
confidential.
The bill requires a licensee, certificate holder, or registrant
substantiated in a case of mistreatment of an at-risk adult to provide the
person's professional license number to county adult protective services.

Bill: HB21-1126
Title: State Architect Authority Execute Certain Leases
DescriptionConcerning the office of the state architect's authority to execute leases on behalf of the state for privately owned property.
Summary

Capital Development Committee. House Bill 14-1387, enacted
in 2014, inadvertently removed, through the use of the definition of real
property, the authority of the department of personnel (department) to
negotiate and execute leases for state use of privately owned property,
including land, office space, buildings, and special use interests. This

eliminated a decades-old policy for the department to serve as the central
authority to assist state agencies and state institutions of higher education
to lease needed office space and other property interests. The department
has been operating under custom and practice to keep negotiating and
executing such leases since House Bill 14-1387 was enacted.
The bill officially reinstates this authority to the office of the state
architect in the department, which houses the real estate program. The
real estate program is the program responsible for centralized leasing.

Bill: HB21-1139
Title: Driver's License Electronic Renewal By Seniors
DescriptionConcerning the acquisition of forms of identification from the department of revenue, and, in connection therewith, facilitating the renewal of drivers' licenses by mail and by electronic means, facilitating the renewal of identification cards by electronic means, facilitating the renewal of drivers' licenses and identification cards by older individuals, and allowing certain individuals to sign a driving log attesting that a minor driver with an instruction permit has completed a minimum number of driving hours.
Summary

Current law allows renewal of a driver's license by mail only every
other renewal period. The bill eliminates this restriction and allows
renewal by mail only if the photo of the person that is on file with the
department of revenue (department) is at least as recent as required by
federal law.
Under current law, to renew a driver's license by mail, a person
who is under 66 years of age must attest under penalty of law that the
person has had an eye examination within the preceding 3 years. A person
who is 66 years of age or older must obtain a signed statement from an
optometrist or ophthalmologist attesting that the person has had an eye
examination within the last 6 months and attesting to the results of the
examination. For both of these requirements, the bill changes the
threshold from 66 to 80 years of age.
Current law allows electronic renewal of a driver's license only for
drivers who are 21 to 65 years of age. The bill eliminates the upper age
limit and allows drivers who are 66 years of age or older to renew their
drivers' licenses electronically.
Current law allows a person to renew a driver's license
electronically only for 2 consecutive driver's license renewal periods. The
bill eliminates this restriction and allows a person to renew a driver's
license electronically only if the photo of the person that is on file with
the department is at least as recent as required by federal law.
Current law requires a person renewing a driver's license
electronically to attest under penalty of law that the person has had an eye
examination within 3 years before the renewal. The bill applies this
requirement only to a person who is 80 years of age or older and adds a
requirement that the person must obtain a signed statement from an
optometrist or ophthalmologist attesting that the person has had an eye
examination within the preceding 6 months and attesting to the results of
the examination.
Current law allows an applicant to renew an identification card by
electronic means if the applicant is 21 to 64 years of age. The bill allows
applicants who are 65 years of age or older to renew an identification card
electronically.
Under current law, the department may not issue a driver's license
to a person under 18 years of age unless the person has submitted a log or
other written evidence certifying that the person has completed a
minimum amount of actual driving experience, and the form must be
signed by the person who signed an affidavit of liability for the person.
The bill allows this form to be signed by the person's parent or guardian
or by a responsible adult.

DescriptionConcerning measures related to eyewitness identification techniques, and, in connection therewith, requiring reporting data related to eyewitness techniques and regulating the use of showup identifications.
Summary

Beginning October 1, 2021, each law enforcement agency that uses

procedure.
The bill creates requirements and conditions that must be followed
when a showup is conducted.

Summary

Statutory Revision Committee. In 2020, the general assembly
repealed the requirement in the mental health practice act that a

professional must be licensed, registered, or certified as a mental health
professional in order to practice auricular acudetox. The bill makes a

professional to perform auricular acudetox without a license, registration,

Bill: HB21-1147
Title: Simplify Architects Continuing Education Requirement
DescriptionConcerning simplification of the regulatory requirements for continuing education of professional architects.
Summary

The practice act for professional architects directs the department
of regulatory agencies to adopt rules establishing requirements for
continuing education and also requiring an architect to demonstrate
retention of the material presented in the continuing education program
or course. The requirement to demonstrate program or course material
retention is not typical among licensed professionals in Colorado and is

not common practice in other states.
The bill removes the material retention requirement, allowing an
architect to renew a license upon demonstrating compliance with the
continuing education requirement alone, as do all other licensed
professionals with continuing education requirements in Colorado.

Summary

state fair authority (authority) and its board of commissioners are required

to publish an annual report each year by October 31 and to distribute the
report to the governor and the members of the legislative committees with

The bill creates, initially within the department of labor and
employment, the Colorado office of new Americans (ONA). The bill sets
forth the ONA's duties and responsibilities and provides details regarding
funding. The ONA serves as the point of contact for immigrant-serving
state agencies, private sector organizations, and the public about
immigrant issues in Colorado, and has as one of its central purposes the

successful integration and inclusion of immigrants and refugees in our

Title: Repeal Obsolete Capitol Dome Restoration Fund
DescriptionConcerning the repeal of statutes related to the obsolete capitol dome restoration fund.
Summary

Statutory Revision Committee. The bill repeals section
44-30-1201 (5)(c)(III), C.R.S., because that section creates the capitol
dome restoration fund, which is obsolete. The capitol dome restoration
was a capital project that commenced in 2010 and has since been
completed. The statutory sections regarding the capitol dome restoration
were repealed in July 2015 but the statute establishing the fund and the

necessary transfers of money to the fund were inadvertently left in the
statutes. The bill addresses that defect.

Bill: HB21-1155
Title: Sales Tax Statute Modifications To Address Defects
DescriptionConcerning modifications to the sales and use tax statutes in order to address certain defects and anachronisms.
Summary

Statutory Revision Committee. Section 1 of the bill changes the
cross references to certain definitions related to bingo that were relocated
as a result of Senate Bill 17-232. The statutory references were not
correctly changed for purposes of the bingo equipment sales and use tax
exemption. This section addresses that defect.
Section 2 removes the words low-emitting from the description

of a sales tax exemption because the exemption is no longer conditioned
on the motor vehicle being low-emitting.
Section 3 corrects a missed conforming amendment. House Bill
20-1023 provided for the conditional repeal of section 39-26-105.3,
C.R.S., to be effectively replaced with section 39-26-105.2, C.R.S.
Section 39-26-204.5, C.R.S., a use tax statute, makes reference to section
39-26-105.2, C.R.S., but a conforming amendment to that section was not
included in House Bill 20-1023. Section 3 adds the same conditional
repeal to the use tax statute and provides the same hold harmless for
retailers as is provided in section 39-26-105.2, C.R.S.
Section 4 addresses an anachronism in the sales tax statutes by
repealing section 39-26-110, C.R.S. That statute specifies that a retailer
doing business in 2 or more locations in Colorado may file one return that
will cover all business locations. This statute was added as part of the
Emergency Retail Sales Tax Act of 1935 and has not been amended
since, only moved around. With the advent of home rule taxing
jurisdictions that can collect and administer their own sales and use tax,
it is no longer possible that retailers doing business in more than one
location in Colorado can file only one return to report all sales and use
taxes collected because the department of revenue no longer administers
all sales and use taxes in the state.
Section 5 addresses a defect in the sales tax statute by updating the
statutory reference for the definition of food for purposes of a sales tax
exemption for certain types of food. The definition of food is no longer
located in 7 U.S.C. sec. 2012 (g). It is better to include a more general
cross reference to all of 7 U.S.C. sec. 2012 instead of the specific
subsection (g), which is now incorrect. A more general reference allows
for later amendments to that section.

Title: Fix Defects Related To Severance Withholdings
DescriptionConcerning the correction of statutory defects related to severance tax withholdings from a disbursement to an oil and gas interest owner.
Summary

Under current law, a producer or purchaser is required to withhold
an amount from each disbursement made to an interest owner in any oil
and gas produced in the state and pay this amount to the department of
revenue. The bill fixes defects related to this law by:
  • For purposes of electronic payments, replacing a

cross-reference to a repealed subsection with a reference to
the current statutory requirement;
  • Expanding the defined term producer to be producer or
purchaser to eliminate a redundancy in the law; and
  • Repealing extraneous references to oil shale from the
definition.
The bill also repeals obsolete filing requirements that applied prior
to July 1, 2007.

Bill: HB21-1157
Title: Accurate References For Department of Revenue Tax Administration
DescriptionConcerning the accurate statutory reference to the types of taxes administered by the department of revenue for purposes of administrative requirements.
Summary

Statutory Revision Committee. Section 39-21-102, C.R.S.,
accurately specifies the scope and applicability of article 21 of title 39,
C.R.S., and establishes all the taxes that the department of revenue is
responsible for administering. However, sections 39-21-119 and
39-21-120, C.R.S., attempt to reference similar lists of taxes in order to

specify authorized methods of filing and paying the taxes. Unfortunately,
some of the tax types are omitted in these sections, making these sections
defective. The bill removes the references to the tax types in sections
39-21-119 and 39-21-120, C.R.S., so that section 39-21-102, C.R.S.,
controls instead.

Statutory Revision Committee. The bill removes an unused
definition of agricultural compounds and a redundant reference to a
sales and use tax exemption for poultry and livestock. The bill also

reorganizes special fuel and farm equipment sales and use tax exemptions
so that they are in the same location.
