Legislative Subcommittee

The role of the CCJJ Legislative Subcommittee is to review the language of bills derived from CCJJ recommendations. All members are chosen from the CCJJ membership and are appointed by the CCJJ Chair.

The Legislative Subcommittee meets on an as-needed basis, often by phone or by e-mail, at the direction of the CCJJ. The Legislative Subcommittee meets almost exclusively during the Colorado legislative session between January and May.  

The only function of the Subcommittee is to determine whether legislation derived from CCJJ recommendations continue to reflect the original recommendation intent. Members review legislation or legislative changes as bills progress through the Colorado legislature.

See the CCJJ Master Calendar for information on all scheduled meetings of the Commission and its subgroups.
