Colorado Revised Statutes Data

For those seeking to publish, reprint, or distribute the statutes of the state of Colorado:

Section 2-5-118, C.R.S., requires persons, agencies, or political subdivisions seeking to publish, reprint, or distribute the statutes of the state of Colorado using the statutory database prepared by the General Assembly or its staff containing the official text of the statutes to submit to the Committee on Legal Services or its designee:

  • A statement specifying those portions of the statutes the person, agency, or political subdivision seeks to publish; and
  • A statement specifying whether the person, agency, or political subdivision is seeking to publish, reprint, or distribute any of the publications ancillary to the statutes such as source notes, editors notes, cross references, annotations, tables, and indices.

As of March 4, 2016, the Committee on Legal Services suspended its practice of copyrighting the original publications and editorial work ancillary to the Colorado Revised Statutes. In addition, the Committee on Legal Services also suspended the imposition of any fee or costs associated with the use of the statutory database prepared by the General Assembly or its staff containing the official text of the statutes.

The statutory database prepared by the General Assembly or its staff containing the official text of the statutes is available only as text files in SGML format and will be provided in a zip file to the requestor without modification.

Any republication of the Colorado Revised Statutes, with or without the ancillary publications, using the statutory database containing the official text of the statutes, must be done accurately and may include a statement that the publication is an officially sanctioned publication using the official text of the Colorado Revised Statutes. The publication may not contain any notice or other indication that it is the official statutes of the state of Colorado.
