PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For LLS 21-0200: REVISED UNIF ATHLETE AGENTS ACT (2015) & 2019 AMENDMENTS

JOINT COMMITTEE COMMITTEE ON COLORADO COMMISSION ON UNIFORM STATE LAWS
Date Dec 16, 2020      
Location HCR 0112



LLS 21-0200: Revised Unif Athlete Agents Act (2015) & 2019 Amendments - To be introduced as a Commission Bill


11:40:24 AM  

Commissioner Levy summarized where the commission was on the Act. After the Governor's veto in 2019, the commission asked for a sunrise review from the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). The DORA report recommended that no regulation was needed based on a lack of demonstrated harm in Colorado and that other remedies are available. Based on this report, the commission wondered whether it is worth going against the sunrise report and the Governor's opposition, especially with this session starting while still in a pandemic. It was pointed out that the Governor's veto was partially based on the perception that the commission had not complied with the sunrise review process, which we have clearly done now.

11:45:13 AM  

Libby Snyder, ULC Legislative Counsel, Colorado passed Senate Bill 20-123, which allows student athletes to profit off the use of their name and likeness and the commission will need to be aware of how the definitions in the two bills interact. She also pointed out that Washington amended the Act to remove the registration requirement and instead have agents file disclosure forms.

11:52:20 AM  
Commissioner Mielke moved to introduce LLS
21-0200: Revised Uniform Athlete Agents Act (2015) and 2019 Amendments
as a commission bill, with the registration requirement replaced with a

Tipper seconded and the motion passed 8-0, 1-excused. Commissioner Tipper
agreed to sponsor the bill and to speak with the Governor's office to see
if the suggested changes address their concerns.
