BILL SUMMARY For HB18-1233

HOUSE COMMITTEE ON STATE, VETERANS, & MILITARY AFFAIRS
Date Feb 7, 2018      
Location LSB A



HB18-1233 - Amended, referred to the Committee of the Whole


01:39:15 PM  

Representative Duran and Representative Lawrence, co-prime bill sponsors, presented House Bill 18-1233.  The bill amends the Colorado Consumer Reporting Act to require a consumer reporting agency to place a security freeze on the report for an individual under 16 years of age or a ward of a guardian (protected consumer) upon request of the parent or guardian (representative), free of charge.  If the reporting agency does not have a report on the protected consumer at the time of the request, the agency is required to create one.  A representative can request that the security freeze be temporarily lifted, lifted for a specific third party, or permanently removed.  A protected consumer may have the freeze lifted when he or she turns 16 years of age.  Reporting agencies are required to include a notice of the rights added by the bill when periodically providing a summary of rights to consumers as required under state or federal law.  If a reporting agency violates a security freeze, it is required to notify the protected consumer's representative, or the protected consumer, within five days of discovering the release of information.
