Mineral Lease Payments Prior to July 2008
(Act of February 25, 1920 (Sec 35))(CRS 34-63-101)
NOTE: The August 2008 distribution was the last distribution of federal mineral lease receipts from the Colorado State Treasury to your jurisdiction.
Senate Bill 08-218, which passed in the most recent state legislative session, made significant changes to the method and process for these distributions of federal mineral lease receipts to local governments.
Starting on July 1, 2008, the local government direct distribution formula payments will be made by the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). Under the new ANNUAL distribution method, the first payment you will receive under the new legislation will be in August 2009.
DOLA will be mailing out informational materials on this new distribution. You can also check their web site.
