01:44 PM -- HB17-1171



Representative Buck and Representative Carver, co-prime bill sponsors, presented House Bill 17-1171. The bill requires the state Transportation Commission to submit a ballot question to voters in 2017 for approval of $3.5 billion in Transportation Revenue Anticipation Notes (TRANs) once existing transportation bonds have been repaid. The maximum repayment cost cannot exceed $5.0 billion or take longer than 20 years to repay. TRANs proceeds must be spent on 149 transportation projects across the state identified in the Colorado Department of Transportation's (CDOT) draft 2016 transportation development program.



The bill also eliminates the final three years of Senate Bill 09-228 transfers and diverts 10 percent of state sales tax revenue to the Highway Users Tax Fund (HUTF) and 1 percent of state sales tax revenue to the Capital Construction Fund (CCF). Both the Senate Bill 09-228 transfers and the sales tax diversions to the HUTF are transferred to the State Highway Fund, so this change will not impact the local distribution of the HUTF. No more than 10 percent of the revenue deposited into the HUTF not used to pay the TRANs may be used for transit-related improvements.
