We Want Your Input on Public Safety Rulemaking

The process of reviewing and changing rules and regulations is a public one. Please see the information below for upcoming decisions and discussions and how to comment. Your comments will be taken into consideration during the rulemaking process, and you are always welcome to attend any meetings associated with the rulemaking process.

CDPS is committed to the full inclusion of all individuals. As part of this commitment, CDPS will ensure reasonable accommodations are provided to enable all people to engage fully in our trainings, meetings and events. To request accommodations, please contact Patricia.Billinger@state.co.us at least two weeks before the meeting date for which you need an accommodation. Please make sure also to let us know if you need any of the materials in an alternative format, including translation into a language other than English. 

For more information or to ask questions, please contact Rules Administrator Patricia Billinger (Patricia.Billinger@state.co.us). You can also submit your feedback on your experience as a participant in a recent virtual rulemaking hearing through this Virtual Hearing Feedback Survey

As always, all Colorado Department of Public Safety rules currently in effect are available on the Secretary of State’s Website.

About CDPS Rulemaking and Stakeholder Engagement

#FFFFFF

Virtually all state government agencies issue rules or regulations of some kind. Most rules and regulations exist at the direction of the state legislature in order to regulate certain business and personal activities. Rules and regulations exist because it's easier to update them, eliminate them, or alter them administratively than it is to pass new legislation as conditions change.
