Colorado Youth Advisory Council Updates

Concerning the administration of the Colorado youth advisory council.
2022 Regular Session
General Assembly
Bill Summary

Colorado Youth Advisory Council Review Committee. The Colorado youth advisory council (council) is comprised of legislative members and nonlegislative members who are 14 to 19 years old. Under existing law, nonlegislative members are appointed to the council by a majority vote of its members. The bill changes the deadline to appoint nonlegislative members and removes the requirement that nonlegislative members be selected by a majority vote of the council.

Existing law requires the council to elect 2 co-chairs and 2 vice-chairs and permits the council to further develop a leadership structure for the council. The bill repeals the requirement to appoint co-chairs and vice-chairs, requires the council to adopt written bylaws setting forth a leadership structure for the council, and clarifies that the council can elect members to serve in any leadership position described in its bylaws.

The council is required to meet 4 times per year. The bill requires that 2 meetings be held in person.

The bill changes the council's annual reporting requirement so that the council reports to the Colorado youth advisory council review committee (review committee) during the interim.

The bill requires the chair of the review committee and the chair of the legislative council to sign council contracts and requires the president of the senate and the speaker of the house of representatives to appoint the chair and vice-chair of the review committee on an annually alternating basis.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
