12:59 PM -- HB17-1253



Senator Crowder, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1253, which requires certain financial professionals to report to the securities commissioner if they believe an at-risk person is being financially exploited, except that for mandatory reporters, making such a report does not satisfy the current law requirement to report directly to local law enforcement. The commissioner must forward any reports to local law enforcement and the county department of human or social services. The commissioner may access records for purposes of investigations, but may not release them under an open records request. Financial professionals may notify any third party previously designated by or reasonably associated with the covered adult when he or she believes financial exploitation has occurred, except when that designated party is suspected of financial exploitation or other abuse of the covered adult. The bill provides for delayed disbursements of moneys and other protective services under specified circumstances and immunity from administrative or civil liability when a financial professional makes a disclosure when acting in good faith and exercising reasonable care to protect the information.
