For purposes of the census, the federal census bureau counts
prisoners in the correctional facility in which they were housed as of
April 1 of the year in which the census was taken. For redistricting
purposes, the bill reassigns those persons to their last known residence in
Colorado prior to incarceration. If the last known residence is outside of
Colorado or the last known residence is unknown, the prisoners are not

counted for purposes of redistricting.
The bill requires the department of corrections (department) to
begin collecting and maintaining specified information on inmates to be
able to provide that information following a federal census. It directs the
department to report the information to the legislative council staff and
the office of legislative legal services (nonpartisan staff) and nonpartisan
staff to develop a database of population to be used in all redistricting.
