About the CCUSL and ULC

The Colorado Commission on Uniform State Laws (CCUSL) is created in § 2-3-601, C.R.S., and is charged with working with the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) to promote uniformity in state laws where uniformity may be deemed desirable and practicable. This is achieved by developing proposed uniform legislation through the ULC that can be adopted by the various state legislatures.

Uniform laws are developed after formation of a study committee and, if the results of the study are positive, a drafting committee. Draft acts are submitted to ULC at its annual meeting. Each act must be considered section by section at no less than two annual meetings by all commissioners sitting as a Committee of the Whole.

This year, the annual ULC national conference will take place in Boston, MA from July 19 to July 25, 2024. Uniform acts expected to be ready for final consideration are:

  • Antitrust Pre-Merger Notification Act
  • Mortgage Modifications Act
  • Unincorporated Organization Acts (20_), Uniform

Uniform Acts expected to be ready for a first reading at the national conference are:

  • Assignment for Benefit of Creditors Act
  • Conflict of Laws in Trusts and Estates Act
  • Judicial Interview Procedures for Children Act
  • Redaction of Personal Information from Public Records Act

Virtual Currency Customer Protection Act

Serving as commissioners for 2023-2024 are Ms. Anne McGihon, Chair; Ms. Claire Levy, Vice Chair; Senator Robert Gardner; Representative Marc Snyder; Ms. Kerry Tipper; and Mr. Joseph Whitfield.

In addition, any Colorado citizen who is elected as a life member of the ULC (after twenty years of membership) is a member of the Colorado Commission. The currently active life members are Donald Mielke and Charles Pike.

The Director of the Office of Legislative Legal Services, or the Director's designee, has the same status as appointed members of the commission and also serves as the ex officio secretary of the Colorado Commission. Yelana Love was appointed as the Director's designee to the Commission on August 19, 2021. The Office of Legislative Legal Services also provides assistance to the legislative members of the Colorado Commission in their efforts to enact legislation regarding uniform acts. The Committee on Legal Services is statutorily charged with filling vacancies on the Colorado Commission.
