Votes: View--> Action Taken:
<none> <none>











03:36 PM -- SB16-038



Senator Aguilar presented Senate Bill 16-038 and provided a handout (Attachment A) to the committee. The bill makes all writings made, maintained, or kept by a community-centered board (CCB) that receives more than 75% if its funding on an annual basis from the federal, the state, or a local government or from any combination of such governmental entities subject to public inspection as a "public record" under the Colorado Open Records Act. The bill also requires the State Auditor, at least once every 5 years or more frequently at the State Auditor's discretion, to conduct or cause to be conducted a performance audit of each CCB described above, to determine whether such CCB is effectively and efficiently fulfilling its statutory obligations. A CCB becomes subject to the audit requirement when the CCB initially satisfies the 75% funding requirement for any one year regardless of whether or not the funding level decreases below 75% in any subsequent year. The bill requires the State Auditor to submit a written report and recommendations to the Legislative Audit Committee. The cost of any performance audit undertaken is imposed on the CCB.
