Public Comment on Demographic Notes
HB 19-1184 requires Legislative Council Staff to prepare demographic analyses for up to 20 bills each year starting with the 2020 legislative session. From October 7th through October 18th, Legislative Council Staff will solicit public comments on a sample demographic note.
What are demographic notes?
Demographic notes outline the potential disparate effects of a bill, including the economic, employment, health, education, or public safety outcomes, on various populations within the state between the state population as a whole and subgroups of the population. Populations may be identified by race, gender, disability, age, geography, income, or other relevant characteristics for which data are available.
How do I provide public comment?
Starting October 7, public comment on the sample notes may be submitted by email to Legislative Council Staff using the link below. Any public comment received will become public record under the Colorado Open Records Act.
Email Comments: DemographicNotes.firstname.lastname@example.org.
