Denver Colorado Capital Building Government Dome Architecture

The Colorado Capitol in Denver.

Here are legislative committee hearings and other events of note for the week ahead in the state Capitol.

Committee schedules are subject to change. The daily schedule is available on the legislature’s website.

A note about remote testimony: This week, the first bill available for remote testimony will be heard in the Senate. Here are the ground rules, from the Legislative Council publication on public participation:

During the 2019 legislative session, six sites will be available for remote testimony for specific bill hearings: Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Otero Junior College in La Junta, Fort Lewis College in Durango, Trinidad Junior College in Trinidad, Lamar Community College in Lamar, and Adams State University in Alamosa.

"If you wish to testify remotely, you will need to sign up through the General Assembly's registration website. In order for a remote testimony site to be available for testimony, at least one witness must be registered to testify at the site at least 24 hours before the hearing on the previous business day. The deadline is 10:00 a.m. for committees scheduled to meet Upon Adjournment. If at least one witness is registered by the deadline, additional witnesses may continue to sign up online to testify remotely until one hour before the scheduled hearing time and may sign up at the remote testimony site until public testimony on the bill concludes. Please note that there is no guarantee that all witnesses, including remote witnesses, will be permitted to testify on a bill, or that remote witnesses will be able to testify at a specific time."
