01:32 PM -- HB16-1230



Representative Dore presented and summarized House Bill 16-1230 concerning the transparency online project to include county information. This bill requires counties to provide revenue and expenditure data to the state Chief Information Officer (CIO) no later than 30 days after the end of the fiscal year for inclusion in the State Transparency Online Project site (TOPS). Data must be segmented by agency and provided in an electronic format approved by the CIO so it can be added to TOPS. If a county fails to provide this data within 90 days of the deadline, the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) will consider this to be an adverse factor when making local government severance tax grant awards. The CIO is also required to archive past county revenue and expenditures data.



Representative Dore summarized and distributed amendment L.004 (Attachment A) and amendment L.005 (Attachment B).
