Jane Ritter, OLLS, discussed how the bill summary could be changed to add language that would address Senator Holbert's concerns about creating a flag to legislators concerning the subject area of the bill. Ms. Ritter then discussed the technical aspects of the bills, including that the bill amends the 2016 Session Laws of Colorado, because the issue with the original bill was the amending clause.

Chairperson Moreno then inquired about sponsorship of bills. He offered to be the bill's Prime Sponsor in the Senate. Senator Steadman and Representative Arndt discussed sponsorship of the bills in the House. Senator Steadman shared that the practice of the Joint Budget Committee is to have one prime sponsor in each house, with the other committee members cosponsoring the bill. Chairperson Moreno then suggested the SRC employ practices similar to the Joint Budget Committee. Representative Arndt then she would be the House Prime Sponsor of the bill. There was no objection to listing the Committee members as cosponsors. Both Chairperson Moreno and Senator Steadman advocated for using "Act Subject to Petition" Clauses on the bills, when appropriate, as opposed to Safety Clauses.

Ms. Ritter then asked about where the bills should originate. Senator Steadman offered that this particular bill should originate in the House.
