Legislative Subcommittee

Due to COVID-19, CCJJ activities (Commission/Task Force/Subcommittee mtgs.) are being conducted virtually.

Created by the Commission in November 2008, the Legislative Subcommittee comprises six members defined by Commission policy. All members are chosen from the CCJJ membership and are appointed by the CCJJ Chair according to the Legislative Subcommittee Role and Membership Policy. The Subcommittee is authorized and directed by the Commission:

  • to review the language of introduced bills derived from CCJJ recommendations and review bill amendments as bills progress through the Colorado legislative process; 
  • to determine whether a bill and bill amendments continue to reflect the original intent of CCJJ approved recommendations;
  • to communicate its conclusions to legislative entities either directly or through the CDPS Legislative Liaison; and 
  • to communicate such "intent determinations" to Commission members in a timely fashion either by email or at the next scheduled Commission meeting.

The Commission may also assign this Subcommittee specific tasks related to legislation or Colorado statutes, such as mandates for statutory review requested by the Legislature. 

UPCOMING MEETINGS

The Legislative Subcommittee meets on an as-needed basis, often by phone or by e-mail, at the direction of the CCJJ. The Legislative Subcommittee meets almost exclusively during the Colorado legislative session between January and May.
