    Sunset Reviews

    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.


    The Minutes are reviewed and approved by the Banking Board prior to posting. Minutes from several previous years are listed in the Archives table below.
