For purposes of suspending legislative interim committee activities during the 2020 interim, the act:
- Prohibits the legislative council of the general assembly from prioritizing any requests for legislative interim committees, including task forces, for the 2020 interim; and
- Prohibits meetings, field trips, and legislative recommendations and reports by, and suspends for one year certain reports required to be submitted to, existing legislative interim committees, including the Colorado youth advisory council review committee; wildfire matters review committee; statewide health care review committee; Colorado health insurance exchange oversight committee; pension review commission and pension review subcommittee; early childhood and school readiness legislative commission; water resources review committee; and transportation legislation review committee.
Additionally, the act removes the requirement that the early childhood and school readiness legislative commission meet at least 4 times each year and instead limits the commission to up to 4 meetings per year.
The act also reduces the state fiscal year 2020-21 general fund appropriation to the general assembly by $100,867 to reflect the savings resulting from the suspension of interim committee activities in the 2020 interim.
