Written public comments may be submitted to the Commission here. These comments should be specifically directed to developing objective criteria per the statutory section of Senate Bill 19-181 Sec. 10 34-60-106 (2.5) (a). The draft criteria are published here.

The comment period closes at 5:00 p.m. MDT April 29, 2019, which allow COGCC to review and evaluate comments prior to finalizing the objective criteria on or before May 19, 2019 as required by the bill.

Due to the volume of comments received the Commission cannot respond to individual comments.

Submitted comments must be approved first and will be viewable within a few days. Comments do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the COGCC, the State of Colorado, or any associated agencies. Due to the volume of comments received the Commission cannot respond individually to every comment.
