Title Retail Establishments Accept Cash Enforcement
Status Governor Signed (06/07/2022)
Bill Subjects
  • Business & Economic Development
  • Financial Services & Commerce
House Sponsors A. Valdez (D)
Senate Sponsors R. Rodriguez (D)
House Committee Business Affairs and Labor
Senate Committee Business, Labor and Technology
Date Introduced 04/25/2022

Current law requires retail establishments to accept United States
currency. One of the exceptions to the requirement is for security
deposits. A violation of the requirement by a retail establishment is a civil
infraction punishable by a fine of $250.
The bill exempts retail establishments in which the primary
method of selling goods or services is through an automatic renewal

contract and defines retail establishment and security deposit. A
violation by a retail establishment is made a deceptive trade practice,
which means that the attorney general and each district attorney has
enforcement authority under the Colorado Consumer Protection Act.
