John Burrus, Independent Bankers of Colorado, stated that most of his concerns had been addressed during the drafting process. His two remaining concerns deal with reasonable determination language in a couple of sections and contingency fee arrangements. He thanked the commission for working with him.
The commission noted that the Treasurer's office has used contingency fee auditors for out-of-state audits for some time and that the commission will need to keep the contingency fee arrangements in the act but will consider changes regarding his other concern. Commissioner Gardner, as the bill's sponsor, indicated that he will continue to work with stakeholders and that the bill could continue to change after introduction during the legislative process. The commission thanked Commissioners Gardner and Levy and Mr. Burrus for their work on the act.
