NO FISCAL IMPACT
December 31, 1998
Scott Nachtrieb (303-866-4752)
TITLE: CONCERNING PROCEDURES FOR THE REVOCATION OF DRIVERS' LICENSES.
Summary of Assessment
The bill would modify procedures related to the driver's license revocation process. A person who failed to cooperate so that a blood alcohol test could be completed in two hours would have their license automatically revoked. Subpoenas to a peace officer would have to be served at least five calendar days in advance of a revocation hearing. The Department of Revenue would be allowed to reschedule a hearing if a peace officer could not attend the hearing due to a reasonable conflict such as training, vacation, or personal leave. Law enforcement officers would have to notify the department 48 hours in advance of the hearing. The bill would become effective July 1, 1999.
The modifications this bill would make would not create additional workloads, expenditures, or revenues to state or local government. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
