Pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute §2-7-203(4), the Department of Public Safety (CDPS) publishes the following 2023 Regulatory Agenda Report. Pursuant to statutory requirements concerning the Department’s Regulatory Agenda, this Regulatory Agenda Report details the results of the past year’s rules review activity, including the results of mandatory rule reviews conducted under C.R.S. §24-4-103.3(4) as part of the Department’s regulatory efficiencies reviews.

Please note that because this report is due by November 1, it includes the status of activities completed through October 30, 2023.  Regulatory activities planned for the remainder of calendar year 2023 will be reflected in the Department’s 2024 Regulatory Agenda and will be reported on in the department’s 2023 Regulatory Agenda Report.

This report includes three sections:


  1. Results of rulemaking activity included in the 2023 CDPS Regulatory Agenda
  2. A more detailed look at outcomes of mandatory rules efficiency reviews
  3. Results of unplanned rulemaking

Note: Several rules appear in both the 2024 CDPS Regulatory Agenda and the Unplanned Rulemaking section of this 2023 CDPS Regulatory Report; these rules are included in both reports in the event that the rules are unable to be adopted as a result of the rulemaking hearing, if the response for the issuance of the Attorney General Rule Opinion is not filed within 20 days after rule adoption, or if the Attorney General Rule Opinion requires amendment to the proposed rules and the Department must re-engage the rulemaking process.
