10:54 AM -- HB 16-1031



Representative Carver, prime sponsor, came to the table to present House Bill 16-1031. This bill, recommended by the Transportation Legislation Review Committee (TLRC), requires that the TLRC study current Transportation Commission (commission) districts to determine whether the number and boundaries of the districts should be modified and how. Legislative Council Staff (LCS), with the assistance of the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), must submit a report to the TLRC no later than August 1, 2016, that details changes since the last time the districts were modified. The report must consider existing county and municipal boundaries, regional transportation areas and districts, and transportation planning regions (TPRs). The report must also include the population, number of lane miles, and annual vehicle miles traveled for each district.



The TLRC must hold public meetings in the major geographical regions of the state to discuss potential modifications to commission districts and may recommend legislation, not subject to review by the Legislative Council, to modify the number and boundaries of commission districts.



Representative Carver distributed the written testimony of four governmental organizations (Attachment A), amendment L.002 (Attachment B), and a memorandum on the fiscal impact of amendment L.002 (Attachment C). Representative Carver responded to questions on amendment L.002.
