Colorado legislature passes metro district reform bill with some changes

The Denver Post: A bill that reforms laws impacting Colorado metropolitan districts cleared the state legislature on the final day of the session Tuesday, but not without legislators first removing a provision requiring the independent certification of developer expenses.

The state House of Representatives late Monday passed Senate Bill 21-262 by a vote of 62-2. Other changes by the House local government and transportation committee included the addition of a requirement that metro districts must publish in a local newspaper any notices of upcoming elections to their boards and requests for resident candidates.

The House sent the bill back to the Senate for reconsideration, and the Senate on Tuesday concurred with the changes. The bill now heads to Gov. Jared Polis.
