The bulletin lists applications from the previous month that have been approved by the Banking Board or the State Bank Commissioner via delegated authority granted by the Banking Board. Transactions remain on the bulletin until completed. Bulletins from the previous few calendar years are listed in the Archives at the foot of this page.
Hearings will be listed on the Agenda. They are not held every month and are conducted on applications for:
- De Novo Charters
- Money Transmitter Licenses
- Other items requiring action by the Banking Board
The Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform is conducting two sunset reviews: one of the Division of Banking and the Banking Board and another of the regulation of Money Transmitters. Each review will produce a report to the Colorado General Assembly and result in legislation based on the recommendations in the reports. Analysis is performed to determine whether regulation is necessary and, if it is necessary, whether any changes should be made to the regulation of state chartered banks, trust companies, escrow companies and money transmitters. Stakeholders are invited to submit any issues, concerns or ideas about the regulation of these entities to COPRRR. To submit your comments online, please visit COPRRR's online form.
