PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For SB18-107

HOUSE COMMITTEE ON STATE, VETERANS, & MILITARY AFFAIRS
Date Mar 15, 2018      
Location LSB A



SB18-107 - Referred to the Committee of the Whole


10:33:37 AM  

Representative Thurlow, bill sponsor, presented Senate Bill 18-107. Under current law, when there is a vacancy for a nomination in a nonpartisan municipal position after a candidate withdraws or dies prior to the 23rd day before a polling place election or the 63rd day before a mail ballot election, the Colorado Municipal Election Code contains a procedure for forming a vacancy committee listed on the nominating petition to select another nominee.  The bill removes this process and makes conforming amendments.

10:35:10 AM  

Karen Goldman, Colorado Municipal League and Colorado Municipal Clerks Association, testified in support of the bill.  Ms. Goldman answered questions from the committee.

10:39:33 AM  

Representative Thurlow made concluding remarks about the bill.
