Maureen Cain, representing the Office of the State Public Defender, spoke in favor of the bill. She recommended an amendment regarding consent to solely use defendant contact information for program purposes only. She also recommended an amendment clarifying that if a court date is missed, the text may not state that a warrant is out for arrest. Instead, the text should read to contact a lawyer.
Tim Lane, representing the Colorado District Attorneys' Council, spoke in favor of the bill. He agreed to work with Ms. Cain on the proposed amendments.
