Senator Moreno, prime sponsor, presented Senate Bill 17-231. Under current law, any report that is required to be submitted to the General Assembly by an executive agency or the Judicial Department expires three years after the first report was due, unless otherwise specified in statute. This bill, recommended by the Statutory Revision Committee, repeals the following Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) reports that have no repeal dates listed in the statute, but would have expired in 2017 pursuant to state law:

      Interagency Task Force on Drunk Driving (Judiciary Committees);

      Annual Report of Fatal Accidents in State Highway Work Areas (Transportation Committees);

      Law Enforcement Assistance Fund Annual Report (Transportation Legislation Review Committee);

      Transportation Revenue Anticipation Notes Annual Report (Transportation Committees, Joint Budget Committee, and Legislative Audit Committee);

      Colorado Bridge Enterprise Annual Report (Transportation Committee);

      Colorado High Performance Transportation Enterprise Report (Transportation Committees);

      Transportation Deficit Report (Transportation Committees); and

      Discretionary Aviation Grant Fund Program Annual Report (Joint Budget Committee).



The bill also adds a repeal date to coincide with the three-year expiration for the Statewide Transportation Plan Report (Transportation Committees).
