Representative Kraft-Tharp and Representative Saine, co-prime bill sponsors, presented House Bill 19-1136. Under current law, the Office of the State Auditor (OSA) is required to conduct a performance and financial audit of various statutory public entities, local governments, and state agencies. This bill clarifies that the OSA may receive the necessary books, accounts, reports, or other necessary documents from specified non-state entities being audited. The bill also expands the misdemeanor for disclosing contents of a State Auditor's report prior to the release to any employee or individual acting in an oversight role with an audited entity. Specifically, the provisions of the bill apply to audits of the Colorado New Energy Improvement District and Program, the use of money in the State Historical Fund, the Colorado Health Benefit Exchange, and Community-Centered Boards. The committee was provided a handout (Attachment A).
