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 and section 2 relocates laws related to the regulation of racing from title 12 to the new title. Section 3 repeals the relocated laws from their current location. Sections 4 through 22 make conforming amendments necessitated by the relocation of the laws.
