01:39 PM -- SB17-085



Senator Zenzinger, sponsor, presented Senate Bill 17-085 to the committee. Under current law, county clerk and recorder offices are authorized to collect a $3 surcharge for each recording or filing the county receives. Beginning January 1, 2018, the bill increases the surcharge by $4 per document, to be deposited in the newly created Statewide Attainable Housing Investment Fund (fund). The fund is created in and administered by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA). Of the moneys in the fund, up to 25 percent must support new or existing programs that assist households earning an income of up to 80 percent of the area median income with financing, purchasing, or rehabilitating single family homes. Programs can include those making loans to such households for specified purposes.



Senator Zenzinger presented amendments L.001, L.002, and L.003 (Attachments A, B, and C) and discussed the bill with the committee.
