03:19 PM -- Division of Water Resources Legislation Proposal



Scott Cuthbertson, Deputy State Engineer, Division of Water Resources, explained that in 2015, the division requested legislation to repeal certain statutory fees collected by the state engineer, including fees related to the filing of maps, judicial decrees, and certificates with the State Engineer's Office (SEO), and the copying of maps and records stored at the SEO. It also would have authorized the state engineer to set by rule these fees, and other fees related to the State Engineer's general duties. The bill draft was not recommended by the Water Resources Review Committee to Legislative Council. Mr. Cuthbertson requested that the committee recommend similar legislation to amend Section 37-80-133, C.R.S., concerning fees collected by the Division of Water Resources (Attachment J). However, unlike the 2015 bill request, Mr. Cuthbertson did not request provisions to authorize the State Engineer to set fees by rule. He also responded to questions from the committee about the proposed bill.
