Description

Beginning in 2020, the bill requires fiscal notes on legislative
measures to include an assessment of whether the measure is likely to
directly cause a net increase or decrease in greenhouse gas pollution in
the 10-year period following its enactment. The assessment must consider
new sources of emissions, increases or decreases in existing sources of

emissions, and any impact on sequestration of emissions. The fiscal note
is not required to estimate the magnitude of the impact. The director of
research of the legislative council staff is required to develop policies and
procedures for completing the assessment. The department of natural
resources, the Colorado energy office, and other state agencies with
relevant subject matter expertise are required to cooperate with and
provide information, if requested, to develop the policies and procedures
for the assessment and to provide information to the legislative council
staff on a legislative measure's impact on greenhouse gas pollution in
connection with the preparation of a fiscal note.
