BILL HB22-1011


Short Title: Wildfire Mitigation Incentives For Local Governments
Sponsors: L. Cutter (D) | M. Snyder (D) / T. Story (D) | P. Lee (D)

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. The bill establishes the wildfire mitigation incentives for local government grant program (grant program) in the Colorado state forest service (forest service). The grant program is established to provide state funding assistance in the form of grant awards to local governments to either match revenue raised by such governments from a dedicated revenue source that is or to expand existing programs administered by the local government on a long-term basis, which efforts are intended to be used for forest management or wildfire mitigation efforts at the local level. Such wildfire mitigation efforts include, without limitation, projects that promote fuel breaks, forest thinning, a reduction in the amount or extent of fuels contributing to wildfires, outreach and education efforts directed at property owners and other members of the public, and any other means of forest management or wildfire mitigation as determined appropriate for funding by the forest service.

The grant program is administered by the forest service.

On or before March 1, 2023, the forest service is required to adopt polices, procedures, and guidelines for the grant program that include, without limitation:

Any funding awarded under the grant program must match either revenues raised by the local government from a dedicated revenue source that is or supplement existing programs administered by the local government on a long-term basis, which efforts are intended to be used for forest management or wildfire mitigation efforts at the local level in accordance with policies, procedures, and guidelines developed by the forest service.A local government is eligible for funding under the grant program even in the absence of a dedicated revenue source if the local government has created and administers an existing program, project, or funding mechanism that creates long-term funding at the local level for wildfire mitigation or forest health or has created and administers other creative and innovative approaches for promoting wildfire mitigation and forest health.

In allocating funding under the grant program, preference will be given to certain eligible recipients based on prioritization factors enumerated in the bill.

Eligible recipients may apply for funding from the grant program, and the recipient's application for funding may be approved by the forest service, before the local government has created a dedicated revenue source that forms the basis for the match if the electors of the local government approve a ballot issue creating the revenue source at an election that takes place in the same calendar year in which the funding is awarded.

The bill creates the wildfire mitigation incentives local government grant program fund (fund) in the state treasury.On July 1, 2022, the state treasurer is required to transfer $10 million from the general fund to the fund. The forest service is to use the money transferred to fund awards under the grant program less the administrative costs of the forest service in administering the grant program.

On or before November 1, 2024, and on or before November 1 of each year thereafter, the forest service is required to publish a report summarizing the use of all of the money that was awarded under the grant program in the preceding fiscal year. The bill specifies additional required components of the report. The report must be posted on the website of the forest service. The bill requires the Colorado department of higher education to summarize the information contained in the report in its "State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act" hearings.

The bill requires the forest service to prepare educational materials concerning the grant program and to display such materials on its official website. In addition, the forest service is also required to undertake outreach activities to inform local governments located in priority areas for wildfire mitigation of the grant program.

The grant program is repealed, effective September 1, 2025. Before its repeal, the department of regulatory agencies is required to review the grant program as part of the general assembly's review of regulatory agencies and functions for repeal, continuation, or reestablishment.

BILL HB22-1012


Short Title: Wildfire Mitigation And Recovery
Sponsors: L. Cutter (D) | D. Valdez (D) / J. Ginal (D) | P. Lee (D)

Wildfire Matters Review Committee. Section 1 of the bill creates the wildfire mitigation and recovery grant program (grant program) in the Colorado state forest service (forest service) to provide grants to help counties with forested areas prevent and recover from wildfire incidents and ensure that such efforts are undertaken in a manner that reduces the amount of carbon that enters the atmosphere. In expending grant money, a county, to the extent practicable, shall ensure that biomass that is removed from forests is recycled or disposed of in a manner that reduces the amount of carbon that enters the atmosphere.The forest service shall administer the grant program and, subject to available appropriations, award grants out of money annually appropriated to the forest service for the grant program. The forest service shall review grant applications in consultation with the division of fire prevention and control in the department of public safety and with the Colorado forest health council in the department of natural resources.The grant program is repealed, effective September 1, 2028. Before the repeal, the grant program is scheduled for a sunset review by the department of regulatory agencies. Section 2 schedules this review.Section 1 of the bill requires the state forest service, on and after September 1, 2022, to develop a publicly accessible statewide carbon accounting framework that yields carbon stock and flux estimates for:

The state forest service must also develop a forest carbon co-benefit framework for project-level forest management practices, including wildfire mitigation. The state forest service must use this framework to train practitioners in adaptive management practices to be incorporated into current forest management practices, including wildfire mitigation. The state forest service must provide technical expertise to assist industry and landowners with carbon inventories and monitoring. Section 1 also allows money from the existing healthy forests and vibrant communities fund to be used for new purposes, including the new statewide carbon accounting framework.Section 2 appropriates, for the 2022-23 state fiscal year, $95,407 to the healthy forests and vibrant communities fund from the general fund.

BILL HB22-1098


Short Title: Department Of Regulatory Agencies Barriers To Practice Regulated Professions
Sponsors: S. Bird (D) | J. Bacon (D) / L. Liston (R) | J. Coleman (D)

The bill requires the director of the division of professions and occupations (director) in the department of regulatory agencies (division) to complete an audit of the regulated professions and occupations and the regulation of various professions and occupations by regulators of a specific profession or occupation (regulator) to determine what barriers exist for licensing, certification, and registration of individuals with criminal history records and report the findings to the general assembly.

The bill limits the authority of a regulator to deny a license, certification, or registration based on an applicant's criminal history record to circumstances when the regulator determines that the applicant's criminal history record jeopardizes the applicant's ability to competently, safely, and honestly practice the regulated profession or occupation as authorized under the applicable practice act or issuance of the credential would not serve public safety or commercial or consumer protection interests. A regulator is required to specify the reasons for any denial based on a criminal history record.

The bill allows a regulator to grant a conditional license, certification, or registration to an applicant if the regulator determines that the applicant will have appropriate oversight provided by the applicant's employer.

Upon request of an individual with a criminal history record, the bill requires a regulator to issue a pre-determination letter to the individual advising the individual if the criminal history may prevent the individual from receiving a license, certification, or registration to practice an occupation or profession. A regulator may charge a reasonable fee for the pre-determination letter.

The director is required to compile de-identified information regarding the reasons why a license, certification, or registration was denied and make this information available to the public on the division's website.

The bill requires state and local agencies responsible for issuing occupational or professional credentials (occupational agency), before making a final determination that an applicant's criminal conviction disqualifies the applicant from receiving a license, certification, permit, or registration, to provide a written notice to the applicant specifying the reason for the disqualification and the right of the applicant to submit additional evidence for the occupational agency to consider before making a final determination. A final determination to disqualify an applicant based on a criminal conviction must be issued in writing and include notice of the applicant's right to appeal the determination and the earliest date on which the applicant may reapply.

BILL HB22-1138


Short Title: Reduce Employee Single-occupancy Vehicle Trips
Sponsors: M. Gray (D) | L. Herod (D) / F. Winter (D) | C. Hansen (D)

For income tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023, but before January 1, 2030, the bill creates an income tax credit (tax credit) for any employer that:

The amount of the tax credit is 50% of the amount spent by the employer to provide alternative transportation options to some or all of its employees.

In addition, the bill requires the executive director of the department of transportation (director), in coordination with the Colorado energy office and metropolitan planning organizations, to create an annual commuter survey for employers to use to determine how their employees commute to and from their work site. The director and the Colorado energy office are required to determine the content of the commuter survey and the form and manner in which the commuter survey will be completed and returned to the department of transportation.

Beginning in specified calendar years, in an effort to reduce the number of employees who commute to and from their work site in a single-occupancy vehicle, employers with over 100 employees are required to:

The bill requires that any private sector employer that wishes to claim the tax credit participate in the employer commuter survey and submit the results of the survey to the department by April 30 of the year in which the survey is conducted, even if the employer's participation in the commuter survey is not otherwise required.

For the 2023-24 state fiscal year, and for each state fiscal year thereafter through the 2029-30 state fiscal year, of the money allocated to the transportation commission for state multimodal projects from the multimodal transportation and mitigation options fund, the transportation commission is required to allocate $250,000 to each of the transportation management associations and transportation management organizations operating in a nonattainment area for the purposes of assisting employers in creating a clean commuting plan and complying with the requirements of the bill.

BILL HB22-1151


Short Title: Turf Replacement Program
Sponsors: M. Catlin (R) | D. Roberts (D) / J. Bridges (D) | C. Simpson (R)

The bill requires the Colorado water conservation board (board) to develop a statewide program to provide financial incentives for the voluntary replacement of irrigated turf with water-wise landscaping (turf replacement program). The bill defines water-wise landscaping as a water- and plant-management practice that emphasizes using plants with lower water needs. Local governments, certain districts, Native American tribes, and nonprofit organizations with their own turf replacement programs may apply to the board for money to help finance their turf replacement programs. The board will contract with one or more third parties to administer one or more turf replacement programs in areas where local turf replacement programs do not exist.

The state treasurer is required to transfer $2 million from the general fund to the turf replacement fund, which fund is created to finance the turf replacement program. The money is appropriated to the department of natural resources for use by the board to implement the turf replacement program, with $11,400 of the money reappropriated to the office of the governor for use by the office of information technology to provide information technology services to the department of natural resources.

BILL HB22-1244


Short Title: Public Protections From Toxic Air Contaminants
Sponsors: C. Kennedy (D) | S. Gonzales-Gutierrez (D) / J. Gonzales (D)

The bill creates a new program to regulate a subset of air pollutants, referred to as "toxic air contaminants", which are defined as hazardous air pollutants, covered air toxics, and all other air pollutants that the air quality control commission (commission) designates by rule as a toxic air contaminant based on its adverse health effects . In implementing the program, the commission has the authority to adopt rules that are more stringent than the corresponding requirements of the federal "Clean Air Act".The division of administration (division) in the department of public health and environment will publish an initial list of toxic air contaminants. Beginning no later than January 1, 2024, September 30, 2030, and every 5 years thereafter, the commission will review the list of existing toxic air contaminants and determine whether to add any additional toxic air contaminants to the list.

On or before April 1 June 30 of each year, beginning on April 1 June 30, 2024, owners and operators of major and synthetic minor certain sources of pollution will submit to the division of administration (division) in the department of public health and environment (department) an annual toxic emissions inventory report that reports the levels of criteria air pollutants and toxic air contaminants that were emitted by the source in the preceding calendar year, beginning with January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023. The division will also conduct a study and prepare a report on the types of information available to the division regarding toxic air contaminants and, no later than December 31, 2024, may require additional types of information to be included in annual toxic emissions reports submitted for calendar year 2025 and each calendar year thereafter.

Beginning no later than January 1, 2024, the division will develop a monitoring program to determine the concentration of toxic air contaminants in the ambient air of the state. The monitoring program will establish at least 6 long-term monitoring sites throughout covering urban and rural areas of the state. The division must provide public notice of and an opportunity to comment on the locations of the monitoring sites. No later than May 1, 2025, and by May 1 of each year thereafter, the division will provide public notice of and an opportunity to comment on the monitoring program.

On or before November October 1, 2025, and at least every 5 years by each October 1 thereafter, the division will prepare a report summarizing the findings of the monitoring program provide public notice of and an opportunity to comment on the report, and submit the report to the general assembly. The division will also report on the need for any additional monitoring sites during the hearings held pursuant to the "State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act" prior to the 2027 legislative session.Beginning no later than July 1, 2027, the commission will identify by rule toxic air contaminants that may pose a risk of harm to public health in the state (high-risk toxic air contaminants) and adopt health-based standards and emissions limitations (airborne toxic control measures) for high-risk toxic air contaminants.On or before July 1, 2032, and at least every 5 years thereafter, the commission will review the health-based standards and airborne toxic control measures to determine if the commission should:

Beginning on July 1, 2027, when applying for a new or modified air pollution permit that is subject to the new source review requirements of the federal "Clean Air Act", the owner or operator of a stationary source of pollution must submit an analysis of the impacts of the stationary source's emissions of toxic air contaminants on concentrations of toxic air contaminants in the ambient air. The division may only approve the application if the division determines, based on the analysis, that the source's emissions will not contribute to an increase in concentrations in the ambient air at or in excess of a health-based standard.Beginning on July 1, 2027, to protect public health and the environment, the division may reopen any existing air pollution permits and require the owner or operator of a stationary source of pollution to submit to the division an analysis of the impacts of the stationary source's emissions of toxic air contaminants on concentrations of toxic air contaminants in the ambient air. If the division determines, based on the analysis, that the source's emissions contribute to concentrations in the ambient air at or in excess of a health-based standard, the division may require a decrease or cessation in the applicable emissions over the shortest practicable time until the emissions no longer contribute to concentrations in the ambient air at or in excess of a health-based standard.The bill also creates the toxic air contaminant scientific advisory board (advisory board) in the department. The advisory board consists of 3 voting members appointed by the executive director of the department and a nonvoting member representing the department. Each member of the advisory board shall:

The advisory board will advise the commission on identifying toxic air contaminants and high-risk toxic air contaminants, establishing and revising health-based standards for high-risk toxic air contaminants, and reviewing and revising the list of covered air toxics.No later than December 31, 2024, the commission will identify by rule up to 5 toxic air contaminants that may pose a risk of harm to public health (priority toxic air contaminants). No later than September 30, 2025, the commission will establish by rule health-based standards for any priority toxic air contaminant identified by the commission.On or before September 30, 2029, and at least once every 5 years thereafter, the commission will:

No later than April 30, 2026, the commission will adopt emission control regulations designed to reduce emissions of each priority toxic air contaminant. For new emission sources of priority toxic air contaminants, the commission will adopt more stringent emission control regulations.

No later than September 30, 2030, and at least once every 5 years thereafter, the commission will:

No later than December 31, 2025, the division will conduct an assessment to determine the needs of the division to administer an air permitting program to regulate new, modified, and existing stationary sources that emit priority toxic air contaminants. The division will provide public notice and hold at least 2 public meetings at which members of the public have an opportunity to comment on the assessment. The division will report on the assessment during the hearings held pursuant to the "State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act" prior to the 2026 legislative session.

BILL SB22-031


Short Title: Prohibit Hunting Bobcat Lynx And Mountain Lion
Sponsors: S. Jaquez Lewis (D)

Current law allows, when authorized by the parks and wildlife commission (commission), a person to hunt and take a bobcat or mountain lion. The bill generally prohibits shooting, wounding, killing, or trapping a bobcat, Canada lynx, or mountain lion. The bill allows for the shooting, wounding, killing, or trapping or the attempted shooting, wounding, killing, or trapping if it is:

A person that shoots, wounds, or kills a bobcat, Canada lynx, or mountain lion to prevent bodily harm to an individual must notify the division within 24 hours after the incident and may not, without authorization from the division, remove from the site, retain, or transfer all or a portion of the bobcat, Canada lynx, or mountain lion.

The bill also establishes an exception for a livestock owner if the shooting, wounding, killing, or trapping of a bobcat or mountain lion occurs on land owned or leased by the livestock owner and is immediately necessary to protect livestock and to protect further loss of livestock if certain conditions are met. A person that shoots, wounds, kills, or traps a bobcat or mountain lion to protect livestock:

A person that violates the bill is guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $500 to $2,000 or up to one year in jail, an assessment of 20 hunting license suspension points, and civil restitution of $700 for a mountain lion or bobcat and $1,000 for a Canada lynx. Additionally, upon conviction, the commission may suspend the person's hunting license for up to 5 years.

The penalty for doing any of the following without legal authority is a class 5 felony:

BILL SB22-051


Short Title: Policies To Reduce Emissions From Built Environment
Sponsors: C. Hansen (D) / E. Sirota (D)

The bill specifies that air-source and ground-source heat pump systems are household furnishings exempt from the levy and collection of property tax. The bill exempts air-source and ground-source heat pump systems from the definition of "fixtures" for property tax purposes.For income tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023, but before January 1, 2033, any purchaser of an air-source heat pump system, ground-source heat pump system, water-source heat pump system, or variable refrigerant flow heat pump system (heat pump system) that installs a residential or commercial heat pump system or a residential or commercial heat pump water heater into real property in the state is allowed an income tax credit in an amount equal to 10% of the purchase price of the heat pump system or heat pump water heater.

For income tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023, but before January 1, 2033, any purchaser of an energy storage system that installs the energy storage system in a residential dwelling in the state is allowed an income tax credit in an amount equal to 10% of the purchase price of the energy storage system.

For the heat pump system and heat pump water heater income tax credit and for the energy storage system income tax credit, the bill requires the purchaser to assign the income tax credit to the seller of the heat pump system, heat pump water heater, or energy storage system (seller) at the time of purchase, and the seller is required to compensate the purchaser for the full nominal value of the tax credit. The bill specifies the requirements of the purchaser, seller, and the department of revenue in connection with the assignment of either income tax credit.

Beginning July 1, 2024, the bill exempts from state sales and use tax all sales, storage, and use of eligible decarbonizing building materials. "Eligible decarbonizing building materials" are defined as building materials that have a maximum acceptable global warming potential as determined by the office of the state architect (office) and to be eligible for the sales and use tax exemption, such materials must be on a list of eligible materials maintained by the office. The bill allows manufacturers to submit the environmental product declaration of an eligible material to the office for the office's review. The office is required to compile a list of eligible materials and the manufacturers of those materials based on the information voluntarily submitted to the office by the manufacturers.

In addition, beginning January 1, 2023, the bill exempts from state sales and use tax all sales, storage, and use of air-source and ground-source heat pump systems or heat pump water heaters that are used in commercial or residential buildings. To be eligible for the sales and use tax exemption under certain circumstances, the purchaser of the heat pump system or heat pump water heater is required to certify that all necessary mechanical, plumbing, and electrical work performed in connection with the installation of the heat pump system or heat pump water heater will be performed by a certified contractor on a certified contractor list created pursuant to current law or by employees of a utility, subject to state licensing requirements and all applicable state and local rules, codes, and standards.Beginning January 1, 2023, the bill exempts from state sales and use tax all sales, storage, and use of energy storage systems that are used in a residential dwelling.

After January 1, 2023, an investor-owned gas utility may apply to the public utilities commission for approval to measure the amount of use for billing purposes in either fuel commodity units or for energy services provided. The public utilities commission is required to approve, deny, or modify the utility's application.

The bill specifies that a statutory town, city, or county may exempt the same items only by express inclusion of the exemption in its initial sales tax ordinance or resolution or by amendment thereto.

(Note: Italicized words indicate new material added to the original summary; dashes through words indicate deletions from the original summary.)

MUST BE SOLD ONLY TO THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY SERVING THE
GEOGRAPHIC AREA WHERE THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN IS LOCATED.
(B) ONCE A COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN IS PART OF A
QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY'S PLAN FOR ACQUISITION OF RENEWABLE
RESOURCES, AS APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION, THE COMMISSION SHALL
INITIATE A PROCEEDING, OR CONSIDER IN AN ACTIVE PROCEEDING, TO
DETERMINE WHETHER THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY MUST PURCHASE ALL OF
THE ELECTRICITY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS GENERATED BY THE
COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN OR WHETHER A SUBSCRIBER MAY, UPON
BECOMING A SUBSCRIBER, CHOOSE TO RETAIN OR SELL TO THE QUALIFYING
RETAIL UTILITY THE SUBSCRIBER'S RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS.
(C) THE AMOUNT OF ELECTRICITY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS
GENERATED BY EACH COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN IS DETERMINED BY A
PRODUCTION METER INSTALLED BY THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY OR
THIRD-PARTY SYSTEM OWNER AND PAID FOR BY THE OWNER OF THE COMMUNITY
GEOTHERMAL GARDEN.
(II) THE PURCHASE OF THE OUTPUT OF A COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL
GARDEN BY A QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY TAKES THE FORM OF A NET METERING
CREDIT AGAINST THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY'S ELECTRIC BILL TO EACH
COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN SUBSCRIBER AT THE PREMISES SET FORTH
IN THE SUBSCRIBER'S SUBSCRIPTION. THE NET METERING CREDIT IS CALCULATED
BY MULTIPLYING THE SUBSCRIBER'S SHARE OF THE ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION
FROM THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN BY THE QUALIFYING RETAIL
UTILITY'S TOTAL AGGREGATE RETAIL RATE AS CHARGED TO THE SUBSCRIBER,
MINUS A REASONABLE CHARGE AS DETERMINED BY THE COMMISSION TO COVER
THE UTILITY'S COSTS OF DELIVERING TO THE SUBSCRIBER'S PREMISES THE
ELECTRICITY GENERATED BY THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN,
INTEGRATING THE GEOTHERMAL GENERATION WITH THE UTILITY'S SYSTEM, AND
ADMINISTERING THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN'S CONTRACTS AND NET
METERING CREDITS. THE COMMISSION SHALL ENSURE THAT THIS CHARGE DOES
NOT REFLECT COSTS THAT ARE ALREADY RECOVERED BY THE UTILITY FROM THE
SUBSCRIBER THROUGH OTHER CHARGES. IF, AND TO THE EXTENT THAT, A
SUBSCRIBER'S NET METERING CREDIT EXCEEDS THE SUBSCRIBER'S ELECTRIC BILL
IN ANY BILLING PERIOD, THE NET METERING CREDIT IS CARRIED FORWARD AND
APPLIED AGAINST FUTURE BILLS. THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY AND THE
OWNER OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN MUST AGREE ON WHETHER
THE PURCHASE OF THE RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS FROM SUBSCRIBERS WILL
BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH A CREDIT ON EACH SUBSCRIBER'S ELECTRICITY
BILL OR BY A PAYMENT TO THE OWNER OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL
GARDEN.
(c) THE OWNER OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN MUST
PROVIDE REAL-TIME PRODUCTION DATA TO THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY TO
FACILITATE INCORPORATION OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN INTO
THE UTILITY'S OPERATION OF ITS ELECTRIC SYSTEM AND TO FACILITATE THE
PROVISION OF NET METERING CREDITS.
(d) THE OWNER OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN IS
RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING TO THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY, ON A
MONTHLY BASIS AND WITHIN REASONABLE PERIODS SET BY THE QUALIFYING
RETAIL UTILITY, THE PERCENTAGE SHARES THAT SHOULD BE USED TO
DETERMINE THE NET METERING CREDIT TO EACH SUBSCRIBER. IF THE
ELECTRICITY OUTPUT OF THE COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDEN IS NOT FULLY
SUBSCRIBED, THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY SHALL PURCHASE THE
UNSUBSCRIBED RENEWABLE ENERGY AND THE RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS AT
A RATE EQUAL TO THE QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY'S AVERAGE HOURLY
INCREMENTAL COST OF ELECTRICITY SUPPLY OVER THE IMMEDIATELY
PRECEDING CALENDAR YEAR.
(e) EACH QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITY SHALL SET FORTH IN ITS PLAN
FOR ACQUISITION OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES A PROPOSAL FOR INCLUDING
LOW-INCOME CUSTOMERS AS SUBSCRIBERS TO A COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL
GARDEN. THE UTILITY MAY GIVE PREFERENCE TO COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL
GARDENS THAT HAVE LOW-INCOME SUBSCRIBERS.
(f) QUALIFYING RETAIL UTILITIES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE INCENTIVES
AND SUBJECT TO THE OWNERSHIP LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN SECTION 40-2-124
(1)(f) FOR UTILITY INVESTMENTS IN COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDENS AND
MAY RECOVER THROUGH RATES A MARGIN, IN AN AMOUNT DETERMINED BY THE
COMMISSION, ON ALL ENERGY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS PURCHASED
FROM COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDENS. SUCH INCENTIVE PAYMENTS ARE
EXCLUDED FROM THE COST ANALYSIS REQUIRED BY SECTION 40-2-124 (1)(g).
(6) NOTHING IN THIS SECTION WAIVES OR SUPERSEDES THE RETAIL RATE
IMPACT LIMITATIONS IN SECTION 40-2-124 (1)(g). UTILITY EXPENDITURES FOR
UNSUBSCRIBED ENERGY AND RENEWABLE ENERGY CREDITS GENERATED BY
COMMUNITY GEOTHERMAL GARDENS MUST BE INCLUDED IN THE CALCULATIONS
OF RETAIL RATE IMPACT REQUIRED BY THAT SECTION.
(7) Applicability to cooperative electric associations and

BILL SB22-119


Short Title: Conservation Easement Tax Credit
Sponsors: C. Simpson (R) | F. Winter (D)

The bill creates a new state income tax credit (new credit) for certain taxpayers who were denied state income tax credits for conservation easements donated between 2000 and 2013 (original credit) if the federal internal revenue service allowed a federal income tax deduction for the same donation. A donation is eligible for the new credit only if the land subject to the donated conservation easement for which the original credits were disallowed was owned by the landowner, a family member of the landowner, or a trust or other legal entity controlled by the landowner or one or more members of the family of the landowner for not less than 3 consecutive years prior to the date of the donation.

The amount of the new credit is based upon the amount of the original credit that could have been claimed at the time of the original donation based upon the value of the donation accepted by the internal revenue service; except that the fair market value of the land used to calculate the value of the new credit cannot exceed 250% of the donor's cost basis in the land subject to the donated conservation easement. The amount of the new credit is reduced by any amount that was allowed to be claimed against Colorado income tax or otherwise reinstated to the claimant of the original credit. The new credit is not refundable but may be carried forward or transferred in the same manner as the original credit. The department of revenue is required to make information about the new credit available online.

The bill establishes a process for applying to the division of conservation to claim the new credit. If the original credit that was denied was transferred to another taxpayer as transferee, the bill provides a process for all parties to the transaction to submit a mutual application to claim the new credit or, if there is objection, an ombudsman process to resolve disputes about the distribution of the credit.

Short Title: Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions In Colorado
Sponsors: C. Hansen (D) | K. Priola (R) / A. Valdez (D) | K. McCormick (D)

Section 1 of the bill requires that, beginning in 2023, each insurance company issued a certificate of authority to transact insurance business to prepare and file an annual report with the insurance commissioner providing a climate-risk assessment for the insurance company's investment portfolio from the previous 12 months. The commissioner of insurance is required to post the reports on the division of insurance's website. Section 1 defines "climate-risk assessment" as a determination of the economic and business risks that climate change poses to an investment that reports more than $100 million on its annual schedule T filing with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) participate in and complete the NAIC's "Insurer Climate Risk Disclosure Survey" or successor survey or reporting mechanism.Section 2 requires the board of trustees of the public employees' retirement association (PERA board ) to prepare a similar include as part of its annual investment stewardship report, and post it which report is posted on the PERA board's website , a description of climate-related investment risks, impacts, and strategies .Section 3 adds wastewater thermal energy equipment to the definition of "pollution control equipment", which equipment may be certified by the division of administration (division) in the department of public health and environment (CDPHE). Similarly, section 13 adds wastewater thermal energy to the definition of "clean heat resource", which resources a gas distribution utility includes in its clean heat plan filed with the public utilities commission.Section 3 4 updates the statewide greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction goals to add a 40% 65% reduction goal for 2028 2035 compared to 2005 GHG pollution levels and a 75% reduction goal for 2040 compared to 2005 GHG pollution levels.Section 4 defines a small off-road engine as a gasoline-powered engine of 50 horsepower or less used to fuel small off-road equipment like lawn mowers and leaf blowers. Section 4 phases out the use of small off-road engines by prohibiting their sale in nonattainment areas of the state on or after January 1, 2030, and by providing financial incentives to promote the replacement of small off-road engines with electric-powered, small off-road equipment before 2030.Section 11 establishes a state income tax credit in an amount equal to 30% of the purchase price for new, electric-powered, small off-road equipment for purchases made in income tax years 2023 through 2029. Section 5 requires the air quality control commission (AQCC), on or before August 1, 2023, to adopt rules to reduce GHG emissions, at a minimum, from sources in the industrial and manufacturing sector that reported GHG emissions greater than 25,000 metric tons from 2020 pursuant to the AQCC rule commonly known as "regulation number 22".Section 6 7 gives the oil and gas conservation commission (COGCC) authority over class VI injection wells used for sequestration of GHG including through the issuance and enforcement of permits if the governor and COGCC have determined that the state has sufficient resources to ensure the safe and effective regulation of the sequestration of GHG gases in accordance with a study that the COGCC conducts . If the governor and COGCC determine there are sufficient resources, the COGCC may seek primacy under the federal "Safe Drinking Water Act" and, once granted, may issue and enforce permits for class VI injection wells. The COGCC shall require, as part of its regulation of class VI injection wells, that operators of the wells provide adequate financial assurance, which financial assurance must be maintained until the COGCC approves the closure of a class VI injection well site.Section 7 8 requires the commissioner of agriculture or the commissioner's designee, in consultation with the Colorado energy office , and the air quality control commission the AQCC, and an institution of higher education with expertise in climate change mitigation, adaptation benefits, and other environmental benefits related to agricultural research , to conduct a study examining carbon reduction and sequestration opportunities in the agricultural sector and in land management in the state, including the potential development of certified carbon offset programs or credit instruments. On or before December 15, 2022 October 1, 2024 , the commissioner of agriculture or the commissioner's designee is required to submit a report summarizing the study, including any legislative recommendations, to the general assembly. The commissioner of agriculture may adopt rules incorporating recommendations and any recommended carbon offsets may be incorporated into the AQCC's rules.

In support of the use of agrivoltaics, which is the colocation integration of solar energy generation facilities on a parcel of land with agricultural activities, section 8 9 authorizes the Colorado agriculture value-added development board (board) to provide financing, including grants or loans, for agricultural research on the use of agrivoltaics. Section 9 directs the state treasurer to transfer $1,800,000 per year through 2027 from the general fund to the agriculture value-added cash fund for implementation of agrivoltaics research. For a research project for which the board awards money to study the use of agrivoltaics, sections 5 and 8 6 and 9 require the director of the division of parks and wildlife to consult on the research project regarding the wildlife impacts of agrivoltaic use.Section 9 10 authorizes the board to seek, accept, and expend gifts, grants, and donations, including donations of in-kind resources such as solar panels, for use in agricultural research projects. Section 9 10 also updates the statutory definition of "agrivoltaics" to list additional agricultural activities on the parcel of land on with which solar panel generation facilities may be colocated integrated , including animal husbandry, cover cropping for soil health, and carbon sequestration.Section 10 11 amends the statutory definition of "solar energy facility" used in determining the valuation of public utilities for property tax purposes to include agrivoltaics.Section 12 establishes a state income tax credit in an amount equal to 30% of the purchase price for new, electric-powered, small off-road equipment, which is defined as a lawn mower, leaf blower, or trimmer, for purchases made in income tax years 2023 through 2029. The tax credit may be claimed by a seller of electric-powered, small off-road equipment that demonstrates that it provided the purchaser a 30% discount from the purchase price of the electric-powered, small off-road equipment.Section 14 appropriates for state fiscal year 2022-23:
