Speaker Duran and Representative Ransom, co-prime bill sponsors, presented House Bill 18-1090. The bill amends the Colorado Consumer Reporting Act to require a consumer reporting agency that has a file on an individual under 18 years of age to automatically place a security freeze on the individual's file, free of charge, and unfreeze the file when the individual turns 18 years of age unless the individual or a parent or a legal guardian requires the freeze to remain in place. It also allows a parent or guardian to request a security freeze, temporarily lift, or permanently remove a security freeze on a child or legal ward. Reporting agencies are required to include a notice of the rights added by the bill when periodically providing a summary of rights to consumers as required under state or federal law.
Speaker Duran requested that the committee indefinitely postpone House Bill 18-1090.
