HB21-1171 - Referred to House Appropriations

Representative Titone, bill co-sponsor, introduced HB21-1171.

The bill creates the Kidney Disease Prevention and Education Task Force, comprised of state legislators, representatives of state agencies, and members of the public, including representatives for kidney patients and health care organizations.  The task force meets at least four times per year, and is tasked with:

  • increasing awareness of kidney disease;
  • examining kidney disease, transplantation, donation, and effects in minority populations; and
  • developing a plan for an ongoing awareness campaign related to early detection of kidney disease and reducing the burden of kidney disease in Colorado.

The committee first convenes by November 1, 2021 and begins submitting annual reports to the General Assembly by December 1, 2023.  The task force is repealed on September 1, 2030, following a sunset review by the Department of Regulatory Agencies.
