BILL SUMMARY for HB16-1367



SENATE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer House Bill 16-1367 to the Committee of the W PASS





02:01 PM -- HB 16-1367



Senator Marble and Senator Hodge, co-prime sponsors, discussed the provisions of House Bill 16-1367 concerning county categorization for salary purposes. The salary of county officers is set in statute and determined by the category of the county in which the officer serves (I through VI). Four subcategories, A through D were added to each category in 2015 under Senate Bill 15-288 for the purpose of increasing or decreasing county officer salaries. All counties are currently in subcategory A, which would result in a 30 percent increase to county officers beginning January 2019, when they are sworn in. This bill recategorizes counties resulting in smaller increases for the elected officers of those counties.



02:05 PM --
Eric Bergman, Colorado Counties, Inc., spoke in support of the bill and provided an informational handout on the bill (Attachment A). He also responded to questions from the committee about the bill and implementation of SB 15-288 by certain counties.
