Summary

Joint Budget Committee. The bill directs the state treasurer to
transfer $2 million from the coal transition workforce assistance program
account (account) to the just transition cash fund (fund) on the effective

date of the bill and directs the general assembly to appropriate $150,000
from the fund to the department of higher education for allocation to the
Colorado school of mines to expand the Carbon Ore, Rare Earth, and
Critical Minerals Initiative for U.S. Basins (CORE-CM initiative) in the
Greater Green river and Wind river basins.
Additionally, the bill modifies the account as follows:
  • Removes the requirement that the department of labor and
employment (department) expend specified percentages of
money in the account by specified fiscal years; and
  • Removes the prioritization of account expenditures first for
programs that directly support coal transition workers,
thereby allowing the department to also expend money in
the account for programs that support coal transition
workers' family members and other household members.
The bill also:
  • Repeals the $7,000,000 appropriation from the account to
the department, made pursuant to House Bill 21-1290, for
the 2020-21 state fiscal year;
  • Appropriates from the account to the department, for the
coal transition workforce assistance program, $500,000 for
the 2021-22 state fiscal year and $2 million for the 2022-23
state fiscal year;
  • Appropriates from the fund to the department, for
authorized investments in just transition programs for
communities, $1,295,000 for the 2021-22 state fiscal year
and $555,000 for the 2022-23 state fiscal year; and
  • Appropriates $150,000 to the department of higher
education for allocation to the Colorado school of mines to
expand the CORE-CM initiative.
