*** A Helpful Resource from the Office of Legislative Legal Services
The Office of Legislative Legal Services, legal counsel for the Colorado General Assembly, maintains a website,, that offers resources about legislation, members of the state legislature, links to audio broadcasting of legislative proceedings, and short summaries (digests) of bills that have passed each year since 1994. The OLLS website also offers several publications, including legal memoranda and law summaries. The "Colorado Revised Statutes" tab under the left-hand menu of options on the site has been enhanced to include "Analyses of Acts with Multiple Articles." This index provides a listing of all of the section numbers and headnotes comprising those statutory acts spanning more than one article in a given title. If you have additional questions about legislation, legislative history or the General Assembly, contact the Office of Legislative Legal Services at (303) 866-2045.
