Refer Senate Bill 17-180 to the Committee on Appro PASS







01:34 PM -- SB 17-180



Representative Esgar introduced Senate Bill 17-180. The bill modifies the civil penalty authority of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) related to motor carrier oversight. The bill also credits these penalties to the newly created Legal Services Offset Fund, which is continuously appropriated to the Department of Law to offset its costs to represent the PUC in actions related to motor carrier violations. The fund balance and interest earnings remain in the fund at the end of each fiscal year, unless the balance exceeds $250,000, in which case the excess is transferred to the General Fund.



01:36 PM -- Mr. Doug Dean and Mr. Ron Jack, representing the PUC, testified in support of the bill.



01:40 PM -- Mr. RJ Hicks, representing the Colorado Motor Carriers Association, testified in support of the bill.
