02:59 PM -- HB17-1107



The committee returned to order. Senator Martinez Humenik, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1107. The reengrossed bill primarily modifies state law to replace the term "Colorado State Titling and Registration System (CSTARS)" with the term "Driver License, Record, Identification, and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (DRIVES)" and creates two revenue transfers from the CSTARS account to the newly created Colorado DRIVES Vehicle Services account as follows:

      33 percent of the CSTARS account fund balance to the DRIVES account on September 1, 2018; and

      the remainder of the CSTARS account fund balance to the DRIVES account on June 30, 2019.



In addition, the bill:

      replaces the CSTARS Advisory Committee, which is currently composed of seven county clerks, with the DRIVES County Governance Committee, composed of nine total members including six county clerks, two Department of Revenue (DOR) employees, and one Office of Information Technology (OIT) employee, who approve DRIVES' annual operating budget and may establish subcommittees and working groups to report to the committee;

      authorizes the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to share images with driver license agencies in other states;clarifies responsibility for title and registration documents between county clerks and DOR;

      codifies in law the practice whereby county clerks transfer motor vehicle transaction revenue electronically to the DMV;

      aligns the terms "authorized agent" and "county clerk" to be synonymous, and redefines last know address for notifications regarding driving privileges; and

      redirects CSTARS account revenue to the DRIVES account as of September 1, 2018.
