Bill Summary

Joint Technology Committee. The bill updates the membership and issues of study for the task force for the consideration of facial recognition services and changes the name of the task force to the biometric technology and artificial intelligence policy task force (task force). The task force will expand from 15 to 17 members and now includes a member who is an expert in generative artificial intelligence technology; a member who is an expert in social media, biometric technology, or artificial intelligence technology advocate for individuals who have historically experienced discrimination by artificial intelligence and facial recognition technologies ; and a member who is an advocate for youth safety and privacy. The member who represents the Colorado bureau of investigation will be replaced.

The bill updates the issues of study of the task force to include artificial intelligence technology and biometric technology in addition to facial recognition technology. The scope of the task force is expanded to include a focus on the use of these emerging technologies generally rather than their use by only state and local government agencies The issues of study have been modified to acknowledge that the facial recognition services, artificial intelligence technology, and biometric technology exhibit bias against vulnerable communities. The bill requires the task force to annually define the scope of issues that the task force intends to study for the year. The bill adds exceptions to the moratorium on schools using facial recognition technologies, which would allow a school to use facial recognition technologies in certain circumstances.

The bill modifies the reporting requirements for state agencies that use facial recognition services so that agency records are maintained by the agency and subject to inspection and review by the office of information technology.
