BILL HB14-1027


BHFS Analysis:

Transportation Legislation Review Committee. For purposes of registering a motor vehicle, a "plug-in electric motor vehicle" is defined to include motor vehicles that are certified to be eligible for a particular federal tax credit and a catch-all provision that applies to other vehicles; for example, one that is retrofitted to be a plug-in electric vehicle. The bill clarifies the catch-all component of the definition to ensure that it is not too expansive.

BILL HB14-1080

BHFS Analysis:

The bill codifies the department of revenue's current practice under federal law of exempting from sales and use tax on-reservation sales of goods and services to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, or an enrolled member of either tribe (tribe or tribal member). This exemption applies if the vendor is located on a reservation or if the vendor is located outside of a reservation and the good or service is delivered by the vendor and received by the tribe or tribal member on a reservation. In addition, all sales of motor vehicles to a tribe or tribal member that occur outside of a reservation are exempt from the sales and use tax if the motor vehicle is registered to an address on a reservation. This exemption applies even if the motor vehicle is not delivered to and received on a reservation, which expands the department's current practice. The bill clarifies that these exemptions may proportionally apply for sales to a legal entity in which a tribe or tribal member has a partial or undivided interest, if a declaration is filed with the department of revenue.

BILL HB14-1100

BHFS Analysis:

Currently, the title of a motor vehicle that has been rebuilt from salvage must be branded. The bill expands branding to include a vehicle that:
* Is nonrepairable;
* Is built from 2 or more vehicles;
* Is flood damaged;
* Has had its odometer tampered with;
* Has an incorrect odometer; or
* Has a designation placed on the title by another jurisdiction. These brands are carried forward to all subsequent titles. Brands from other states are carried forward in Colorado. If a vehicle is classified as junk, its title is canceled and cannot be reissued. If a vehicle is nonrepairable, the owner must apply for a nonrepairable title and the vehicle must be sold for parts or scrap. When the part is sold, a copy of the nonrepairable title shows ownership of the part. The salvage brand statute is moved to its own section.

BILL HB14-1199

BHFS Analysis:

The bill provides for changes to the regulation of consumer goods service contracts based on the model act of the national association of insurance commissioners. These contracts require the provider to perform repair, replacement, or maintenance on any consumer good covered by the service contract. The bill requires that service contracts be in writing and disclose to the contract holder the terms and conditions of the contract, the covered consumer goods, the identity of the provider and any administrator appointed by the provider, procedures for cancellation of the contract by either the provider or the service contract holder, and whether the service contract is protected by reimbursement insurance coverage. Under this bill, a provider must provide the contract holder with a sample copy of the service contract prior to selling the contract, and must provide an actual copy of the contract to the contract holder within a reasonable time following sale of the contract. The bill requires that a contract holder be allowed to void the contract within 20 days after the contract holder receives the contract unless the contract holder has already made a claim under the contract. Either a contract holder or a provider may cancel a contract at any time, in which case the provider must refund to the contract holder a pro rata share of the consideration paid to the provider minus a 10% administrative fee. In order for a service contract provider to sell service contracts, the provider must demonstrate an ability to faithfully provide the services covered under the contract. The provider can do this by either obtaining reimbursement insurance coverage, maintaining a funded reserve account and placing a financial security deposit in trust with the commissioner of insurance, or demonstrating that the provider's company or parent company has a net worth of at least $100,000,000. A service contract provider must also adhere to record-keeping requirements, and must maintain those records for a period of at least one year after the specified coverage has expired. The bill specifies that service contracts are not insurance, and service contract providers, as well as their agents and employees, are not required to be licensed under any other provisions of the state insurance laws. Service contract providers, with some exceptions, are not allowed to use terms descriptive of the insurance industry in their name. Service contract providers are also prohibited from making false and misleading statements. Lending institutions, sellers, and manufacturers are further prohibited from requiring a service contract as a condition of a loan or for the sale of any property. The commissioner may discipline noncompliance with the bill through an administrative hearing and may seek a judicial remedy for enforcement. Any civil penalties assessed by the commissioner are limited to $500 per violation, up to $10,000 for all violations of a similar nature.

BILL HB14-1326

BHFS Analysis:

The bill:
* Allows an income tax credit for the purchase or conversion of an electric or plug-in electric truck with a gross vehicle weight rating of over 8,500 pounds at a percentage of the actual cost incurred and caps the total amount a taxpayer may claim in a tax year;
* Expands the income tax credit for the purchase or conversion of a truck equipped to operate on compressed natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas to include liquefied natural gas and hydrogen and also allows the credit for heavy duty trucks;
* Allows an income tax credit for the purchase of devices on the United States environmental protection agency's smartway verified technology list that minimizes drag and improves air flow over a truck and trailer;
* Allows an income tax credit for the purchase of clean fuel refrigerated trailers; and
* Makes the availability of certain of the tax credits dependent on a determination by the Colorado energy office of whether any category 4, 4 A, 4 B, 4 C, 7, or 7 A medium or heavy duty trucks are actually reducing emissions over a life-cycle period as compared to the emissions of similar trucks using traditional fuel. The applicability of the current sales and use tax exemption for motor vehicles, power source for any motor vehicle, or parts used for converting the power source for any motor vehicle is limited, as of July 1, 2014, to those motor vehicles with gross vehicle weight ratings greater than:
* 26,000 pounds if the motor vehicle, power source for the motor vehicle, or parts used for converting the power source for the motor vehicle are certified by the United States environmental protection agency and the national highway traffic safety administration as provided in the federal heavy-duty program that includes new greenhouse gas emissions standards and new fuel efficiency standards; or
* 10,000 pounds if the motor vehicle, power source for the motor vehicle, or parts used for converting the power source for the motor vehicle meets the definitions of category 4, 4 A, 4 B, 4 C, 7, and 7 B trucks. The taxable value of category 4, 4 A, 4 B, 4 C, 7, and 7 B trucks is reduced to 75% of the actual purchase price of those trucks for purposes of calculating the specific ownership tax.

BILL HB14-1367

BHFS Analysis:

Currently, most self-propelled 3-wheel vehicles may be considered motorcycles under the "Uniform Motor Vehicle Law". This means, among other things, that a driver must have a motorcycle endorsement on the driver's license and wear a helmet. Autocycles are self-propelled 3-wheeled vehicles that have safety belts and air bags and are completely enclosed. The bill clarifies that the definition of "motorcycle" does not include autocycles. This means that motorcycle-specific rules don't apply to an autocycle driver. But autocycles are issued license plates that are similar to motorcycle plates.

BILL HB14-1383

BHFS Analysis:

Current law requires an employer or workers' compensation insurer to provide a list of at least 2 physicians or 2 corporate medical providers or one physician and one corporate medical provider to an injured employee from which to select a treating physician. The bill changes that number to 4 physicians and corporate medical providers. Current law states that if there are fewer than 4 physicians or corporate medical providers within 30 miles of the employer's place of business, the employer or insurer may instead designate one physician or one corporate medical provider. The bill adds an exemption for rural areas where there are more than 3, but fewer than 9 physicians or corporate medical providers within 30 miles of the employer's place of business, the employer or insurer may instead designate 2 physicians or 2 corporate medical providers or a combination of the providers.

The bill expands the existing list of persons and entities that are eligible to receive moneys from the electric vehicle grant fund, administered by the Colorado energy office (CEO), by adding private businesses and nonprofits and allowing the CEO to consider the extent to which grant applicants' proposed charging locations serve existing vehicles or encourages the acquisition of new vehicles.

BILL SB14-196

BHFS Analysis:

The bill creates the family and medical leave insurance (FAMLI) program in the newly created division of family and medical leave insurance (division) in the department of labor and employment (department) to provide partial wage replacement benefits to eligible individuals who take leave from work to care for a new child or a family member with a serious health condition or who are unable to work due to their own serious health condition. Each employee in the state that has not opted out of the program will pay a premium based on a percentage of the employee's yearly wages, and the premiums are deposited into the family and medical leave insurance fund from which family and medical leave benefits are paid to eligible individuals. The division is established as an enterprise, and premiums paid into the fund are not considered state revenues for purposes of section 20 of article X of the state constitution (TABOR).

BILL SB14-200

BHFS Analysis:

Current law allows a low-emission vehicle to use high occupancy vehicle (HOV) and high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes if they meet certain criteria and have been issued a sticker or decal. The bill authorizes a transponder in lieu of a sticker or decal. A low-emission vehicle not meeting the definition of an alternative fuel vehicle is no longer allowed to use HOV or HOT lanes, but a vehicle authorized or on a waiting list as of April 1, 2014, is allowed to continue to do so. An application for a sticker, decal, or transponder must contain an affidavit in which the applicant attests that his or her vehicle is an alternative fuel vehicle. Currently, the number of low-emission vehicles authorized to use the HOV or HOT lanes is limited to 2,000. The bill expands the number of vehicles to 6,000 vehicles, but the department of transportation may subsequently increase the limit if new lanes are added. The authorization for an alternative fuel vehicle to use HOV or HOT lanes expires after 4 years or when the vehicle changes ownership.
