09:11 AM -- Status Update Regarding AOA

.

09:12 AM --
Debbie Haskins, Office of Legislative Legal Services, testified before the Committee concerning the bill that was approved for drafting at the October 13, 2016, Committee hearing, which modernizes, aligns, and repeals obsolete and incorrect references and provisions associated with the Administrative Organization Act of 1968, article 1 of title 24, Colorado Revised Statutes. Ms. Haskins shared that the bill, at over 100 pages, with more than 200 sections, and affecting 19 principal departments, needed more time to be vetted by stakeholders. The Committee agreed that the bill should be laid over until the 2017 interim.



09:17 AM -- 3a. OSA Draft





09:18 AM --




Kate Meyer, OLLS, introduced the bill draft of LLS 17-0262, which was authorized in the October meeting and concerns modernization of laws affecting the Office of the State Auditor (OSA) and the Legislative Audit Committee.

BILL: 3a. OSA Draft
TIME: 09:22:11 AM
MOVED: Steadman
MOTION: Senator Steadman moved that LLS 17-0262 be introduced as an SRC bill. The motion passed 5-0.

09:24 AM -- 3b. ANSI



Ms. Meyer introduced the bill draft of LLS 17-0261, which was authorized in the October meeting and amends statutory references to national standards concerning accessible housing that are promulgated by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). She explained that the suggested changes were brought by the Office of the State Architect, headed by former Representative Gerou and State Auditor Dianne Ray, who worked with Ms. Meyer to draft the bill.



09:29 AM --

Jennifer Gilroy, Revisor of Statutes, then testified that after the ANSI issued was raised in the October meeting, she began looking into the ANSI standards for publication of the Colorado Revised Statutes, which she oversees, or more specifically, those standards that specify the type of paper used to ensure the publication of the statues meets certain archival standards. She is adding that change to the 2017 Revisor's Bill. However, she explained that after researching the other ANSI standards referred to throughout the statutes, she doesn't believe that any changes other than those that affect publications are within her purview—as that could be seen as dictating an updated standard to another department or agency, as updating the standard language may be more substantive than it first appears.

BILL: 3b. ANSI
TIME: 09:31:13 AM
MOVED: Steadman
MOTION: Senator Steadman moved that LLS 17-0261 be introduced as an SRC bill. The motion passed on a vote of 6-0.

09:32 AM -- 3c. Repeal posting requirements



Ms. Meyer introduced LLS 17-0264, which was authorized in the October meeting and concerns removing an obsolete provision related to uncashed checks and warrants. She explained that current law requires that, on an annual basis, the state treasurer and state controller physically post a list of the checks and warrants that remain uncashed during the prior fiscal year—and that this provision that is fairly obsolete and impractical. Because those entities have developed more modern practices to comply with this provision, the bill draft strikes the physical posting requirement and also the designation that the moneys reflected in those uncashed checks and warrants should be treated as unclaimed property, with the exception of the wildlife cash fund money.

BILL: 3c. Repeal posting requirements
TIME: 09:35:24 AM

LegeCouncilReportDatabase.pdfLegeCouncilReportDatabase.pdf



Kristen Forrestal and Kip Kolkmeier, both from OLLS, discussed the 17 bill drafts before the Committee that correspond to the chart provided by Susan Riddle and the Legislative Council that referenced 24-1-136, which states that reporting requirements to the General Assembly from executive agencies of the judicial branch expire three years and one day after the first report is required. The Committee agreed in the last meeting that the executive branch agencies should provide input as to whether the reporting requirements should be continued. The bills are drafted purely technically—not with any attention to the report, so that the Committee, the agencies, and the JBC could discuss which requirements should be retained.
