TITLE: CONCERNING RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE SENATE STATE, VETERANS, AND MILITARY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE RELATED TO THE CONTINUATION OF REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN REPORTS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY FROM EXECUTIVE AGENCIES UNDER TITLE 24 TO PART 1 OF ARTICLE 32, COLORADO REVISED STATUTES.
Summary of Assessment
The bill would eliminate the following state agency requirements to submit reports to the General Assembly:
• Non-profits created by a state agency or state employees acting within the scope of employment;
• Moneys received and disbursed by escrow account established for the benefit of crime victims;
• Grants made from and funds received by the Victims and Witnesses Assistance and Law Enforcement Fund;
• Asset and liability statement filed by each public entity self-insurance pool;
• Governor on the discharge of assigned responsibilities by principal departments;
• State Treasurer on the condition of the State Treasury;
• Controller on capital leases having a total value of at least $50,000;
• Department of Personnel of any final decision by the Colorado Supreme Court or Court of Appeals on the constitutionality of the issuance of certificates of participation or other evidence of a district's commitment to pay moneys due under a contract for the lease or purchase of real property;
• Controller on travel expenses of state employees;
• Controller concerning collection of debts due the state;
• Controller concerning the amount of uncommitted reserves credited to state cash funds;
• Account of activities related to the Public Safety Communications Trust Fund and the receipts and expenditures of such fund;
• Account of acquisitions and disposition of real property and capital assets worth more than $100,000 by state agencies;
• Controlled maintenance projects that have been completed, eliminated, or initiated by the Department of Personnel;
• Commission on Information Management concerning the implementation of strategic planning for the state's information systems;
• Director of the Division of Local Affairs on the activities of the division; and
• Waste tire disposal and recycling program.
The bill would become effective ninety days after the General Assembly adjourns unless a petition is filed.
The bill would eliminate some requirements to submit reports to the General Assembly. Eliminating the requirement to submit these reports to the General Assembly would not require a change in the appropriation for any of these state agencies. Generally these reports are created from information that is already collected by the agency and would continue to be collected. Putting the information into a report form has not required significant resources. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
