11:51 AM -- HB16-1280



Representative Winter, sponsor, introduced House Bill 16-1280. Under current law, the Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) licenses air ambulances to operate in Colorado that are accredited with the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS). This bill gives the CDPHE additional authority to establish state-level licensing of air ambulances that allows for air ambulance operators to receive a license either by gaining accreditation through an approved organization, such as CAMTS (which is no longer directly referenced in statute) or by meeting licensing standards established by the CDPHE and the State Board of Health.



11:55 AM -- Mr. Randy Kugkendall, representing CDPHE, testified in support of the bill and answered several committee questions.
