11:44 AM -- HB17-1217



Representative Saine and Representative Winter, co-prime bill sponsors, presented House Bill 17-1217. The bill, recommended by the Legislative Audit Committee, changes the way the board members of the Colorado Historical Society are selected. Under current law, the board has nine members: five members appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate, and four members recommended by the board for appointment by the Governor with the consent of the Senate. Under this bill, all nine members will be appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate.



The directors council of the State Historical Society is created in current law. The bill allows the board to establish the council; however, if the council is not established by June 1, 2020, the bill repeals the section authorizing its establishment.



11:48 AM --
Robert Musgraves, History Colorado, testified in support of the bill. He provided a handout to the committee (Attachment B).
