Executive Order D 2012-002, and Senate Bill 14-063 require State agencies to review all agency Rules at least once every five years. Rules 1 and 12 have been reviewed this year and the Division is proposing changes for the sake of consistency and clarification and to fix minor errors. Further changes to Rule 12 are proposed to update the language to reflect current practices and to allow for emerging technologies.  Stakeholders are welcome to suggest additional changes to these Rules.

The Division is soliciting input from stakeholders regarding the proposed Rule changes.  All stakeholders are invited to attend the Rulemaking Workshop. Written comments and questions are welcome between today’s date and August 31, 2019. Any stakeholder that prefers to participate in this rulemaking process in writing, can either mail comments to the Division at the Golden Gaming office, or send them via e-mail to ronni.hunter@state.co.us.
