Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Colorado Coroners Standards And Training Board.

The bill makes the following changes to the Colorado coroners standards and training board (board) in the department of public health and environment (department):

  • Requires that the chairperson of the board be either a coroner or a forensic pathologist;
  • Increases the number of hours required to fulfill annual in-service training;
  • Authorizes the director of the department to expend any gifts, grants, or donations that the department receives to cover the costs of operating the board; and
  • Specifies that staff at the department, rather than an independent contractor, will perform the administrative duties related to the operation of the board.
