Committee on Legal Services. Current law directs the office of legislative legal services to study the organizational recodification of title 12 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, which relates to professions and occupations. One recommendation of the study is to relocate laws located in title 12 that are administered by the department of revenue to a new title 44, which will consist solely of laws administered by the department of revenue that regulate a variety of activities.
To implement this recommendation, section 1 of the bill creates title 44, section 2 relocates laws related to the regulation of alcohol beverages from title 12 to the new title, and section 3 repeals the relocated laws from their current location. Sections 4 through 25 make conforming amendments.
Section 26 appropriates $3,091 for the 2018-19 fiscal year from the liquor enforcement division and state licensing authority cash fund to the department of revenue for use by the liquor and tobacco enforcement division to implement the bill, allocated as follows:
(a) $2,400 for personal services; and
(b) $691 for operating expenses.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
