06:11 PM -- HB 16-1304



Representative Tyler, prime sponsor, came to the table to present House Bill 16-1304. The bill requires the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to hold at least one community meeting about transportation planning and funding in each of the 15 Transportation Planning Regions (TPRs) by October 1, 2016. The Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) is to assist CDOT in providing extensive public notice in advance of each community meeting.



The bill specifies meeting protocol, including a requirement that public testimony, including remote public testimony, be available. Each meeting must include representation from the transportation commissioners whose districts fall within the region, the area CDOT regional transportation director's office, and any overlapping economic development district. Other specified government officials must also be invited.



No later than November 1, 2016, the TPR representative who convened the meeting is required to develop and submit to CDOT's executive director a report ranking their region's top transportation priorities and the preferred means of raising revenue to fund those priorities. CDOT's executive director must compile the regional reports into a statewide report, ranking top transportation priorities and preferred funding mechanisms, and present that report during CDOT's 2017 SMART Act hearing. The bill repeals on July 1, 2017.



Amendment L.001 was distributed to the committee (Attachment I).
