Bill Summary

Joint Budget Committee. The licensing services cash fund (fund) consists mainly of fees charged for the issuance of drivers' licenses, driving permits, and state identification cards. The department of revenue (department) uses the fund primarily to fund the issuance of those documents.

The Colorado DRIVES vehicle services account (DRIVES account) of the highway users tax fund consists mainly of vehicle title and registration fees and specific ownership tax transaction fees.

  • Requiring all fees that had been credited to the fund to instead be credited to the DRIVES account; and
  • Requiring all functions that had been funded from the fund to instead be funded from the DRIVES account.

The bill also requires DRIVES account investment earnings to be credited to the account.

Sections 1, 2, and 21 of the bill contain its substantive provisions. Sections 3 through 20 make conforming amendments.
