Title 12 Recodification Project Stakeholder Meeting October 24

Posted: October 22, 2018

The Office of Legislative Legal Services (OLLS) continues to seek stakeholder input for the final phase of the Title 12 Recodification Project. This project is focused on structurally reorganizing statutory provisions and creating a streamlined set of rules that are better organized throughout Title 12. The recodification of the title serves as a structural organization of laws, including the consolidation of definitions, board/director powers and duties.

The Title 12 Recodification Project is in its final phase, which involves reviewing each practice act in title 12 and proposing nonsubstantive organizational changes to the practice acts. While each practice act will be renumbered, and some structural changes will be proposed, regulated professions and occupations under the Division of Professions and Occupations (DPO) will not undergo substantive changes to their practice acts. No changes will be made to:

  • the qualifications for obtaining a license, registration, or certification;
  • the grounds for discipline;
  • the scope of practice; or
  • any other provisions that are unique to, and pertain directly to, the practice of the profession.

Public feedback is crucial as we continue to make alterations to Title 12. We encourage you to participate in the remaining meeting for your specific profession. All meetings will take place at the Colorado State Capitol at the time and room specified below:

  • October 24, 10:00 a.m. in HCR 0109 
    • Meeting to discuss proposals regarding dentists and dental hygienists, direct-entry midwives, medical practice, mental health professionals, naturopathic doctors, nurses, and nurse aides
  • October 31, 10:00 a.m. in HCR 0109
    • Meeting to discuss proposals regarding nursing home administrators, occupational therapists, optometrists, pharmacy, physical therapists, podiatrists, psychiatric technicians, respiratory therapists, speech- language pathologists, surgical assistants and surgical technologists, and veterinarians

You may also listen to the meetings, including archived recordings and subscribe to the project mailing list. Since the OLLS typically emails the draft proposals a day or two in advance of the meeting at which the proposal will be discussed, you can ensure that you receive the proposal to review if you sign up on the mailing list.

Please note that the OLLS held a meeting on October 3 to discuss proposals regarding accountants, barbers and cosmetologists, combative sports, fantasy contests, mortuaries and crematories, and outfitters and guides. The initial proposals are available on the Title 12 Recodification Project webpage linked below, and updated proposals will be available on the webpage within the next week. You can also listen to the archived recording of the meeting as noted above. If you have any feedback or questions about any of those proposals, contact Christy Chase at [email protected] or 303-866-2008

The anticipated timeline is to present the information accumulated during the public stakeholder process to the Committee on Legal Services this fall for introduction of a bill in the 2019 Legislative session. More than 20 bills were passed during the previous two legislative sessions to relocate large portions of Title 12, including bills that moved 13 articles and parts under the regulatory authority of the Department of Revenue from Title 12 to the newly created Title 44.

More information is available at the Title 12 Recodification Project webpage.
