Bills Addressed: Action Taken:
SB16-010 Amended, Referred to the Committee of the Whole



11:21 AM -- SB 16-010



Representative J. Becker, prime sponsor, presented Senate Bill 16-010 to the committee. Under current law, a used off-highway vehicle (OHV) may not be sold to a powersports vehicle dealer if the owner does not possess a certificate of title for the vehicle. This bill allows a powersports vehicle dealer to purchase an OHV that has never been titled if it was previously purchased either in a jurisdiction that does not issue titles for such vehicles or in Colorado before January 1, 2014, if:



• the dealer contacts its local law enforcement agency to verify that the vehicle has not been reported stolen and its county clerk to verify there are no outstanding security interests on the vehicle; and

• the owner signs an affidavit, under penalty of perjury, to confirm ownership of the vehicle and how long the owner has possessed it.



The dealer must then present the signed affidavit to the Department of Revenue (DOR) to obtain a certificate of title for the OHV.



Current law allows an OHV registration issued by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to serve as sufficient evidence of ownership to obtain a title for the vehicle. The bill limits this to OHVs first purchased in Colorado before July 1, 2014, that have been registered for at least one year.



Representative Becker distributed amendment L.002 to the committee (Attachment A). He responded to a question from the committee.
