Darla Daniel, Co-legislative Liaison for CBA Trust and Estates Section, speaking as an individual member of the subcommittee working on the UPC amendments and not on behalf of the section as a whole. The group is on board for removing outdated language and updating terminology to be gender-neutral and have approved three of the 28 proposed changes. Colorado adopted the 2008 UPC amendments regarding artificial reproductive technology, but the subcommittee is looking at what tweaks may be required to incorporate the 2019 amendments in this area. The subcommittee will not be ready to proceed for the 2020 session. The commission asked if the subcommittee would be ready in time for the 2021 session. Ms. Daniel indicated that the terminology update changes could be ready for 2021 but some decisions might be contingent on decisions made regarding the 2017 Uniform Parentage Act. The commission thanked the CBA for its time on this act.
Commissioner Scott moved to table consideration of the Amendments to the Uniform Probate Code for this year and to consider it for the 2021 legislative session. Commissioner Tipper seconded and the motion passed without objection.
