12:50 PM -- HB16-1462
Senators Jahn and Guzman presented House Bill 16-1462 to the committee. This bill, as amended by the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee, allows the Lieutenant Governor to serve as the state's Chief Operating Officer (COO) through the end of the current term of office, January 10, 2019. Acceptance or retention of an appointment as COO does not result in a forfeiture of the Office of the Lieutenant Governor and is not to be deemed inconsistent with the duties of either role. If the Lieutenant Governor serves concurrently as the COO, he or she is to be paid a salary commensurate with the salary paid for the position of COO.
The bill was laid over for action later in the meeting.
