SB 17 39 EDUCATION INCOME TAX CREDITS FOR NONPUBLIC SCHOOL

Concerning the creation of income tax credits for nonpublic education, and, in connection therewith, reducing an appropriation.

THE CCC SUPPORTED THIS LEGISLATION

DESCRIPTION: The bill establishes a private school tuition income tax credit for income tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2018, that allows any taxpayer to claim a credit when the taxpayer enrolls a dependent qualified child in a private school or the taxpayer provides a scholarship to a qualified child for enrollment in a private school and the private school issues the taxpayer a credit certificate for either enrolling a dependent qualified child in the private school or providing a scholarship to a qualified child for enrollment in the private school.

The credit may be carried forward for 3 years but may not be refunded, and the department of revenue is granted rule-making authority. In addition, the credit may be transferred, subject to certain limitations. The amount of the credit is:

For any qualified child attending a private school on a full-time basis as described in the state board of education rules, an amount equal to either the tuition paid or the scholarship provided to a qualified child, as applicable, or 50% of the previous year’s state average per pupil revenues, whichever is less; and

For any qualified child attending a private school on a half-time basis as described in the state board of education rules, an amount equal to either the tuition paid or the scholarship provided to a qualified child, as applicable, or 25% of the previous year’s state average per pupil revenues, whichever is less.

The bill also establishes an income tax credit for income tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2018, that allows any taxpayer who uses home-based education for a qualified child to claim an income tax credit in an amount equal to:

$1,000 for a taxpayer who uses home-based education for a qualified child who was enrolled on a full-time basis as described in the state board of education rules in a public school in the state prior to being taught at home; and $500 for a taxpayer who uses home-based education for a qualified child who was enrolled on a half-time basis as described in the state board of education rules in a public school in the state prior to being taught at home.

The credit may be carried forward for 3 years but may not be refunded. In addition, the credit may be transferred, subject to certain limitations.

The bill decreases the general fund appropriation made in the annual general appropriation act for the 2017-18 state fiscal year to the department of education for the state share of districts’ total program funding by $50,000,000.

 SB 17 62 STUDENT FREE SPEECH PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION CAMPUSES

Concerning the right to free speech on campuses of public institutions of higher education.

THE CCC SUPPORTED THIS LEGISLATION

DESCRIPTION: The bill prohibits public institutions of higher education (public institution) from limiting or restricting student expression in a student forum. ‘Expression’ is defined to mean any lawful verbal or written means by which individuals communicate ideas to one another, including all forms of peaceful assembly, protests, speaking verbally, holding signs, circulating petitions, and distributing written materials. ‘Expression’ also includes voter registration activities but does not include speech that is primarily for a commercial purpose.

  A public institution shall not subject a student to disciplinary action as a result of his or her expression. A public institution shall not designate any area on campus as a free speech zone or otherwise create policies that imply that its students’ expressive activities are restricted to a particular area of campus. Additionally, a public institution shall not impose restrictions on the time, place, and manner of student speech unless such restrictions are reasonable, justified without reference to the speech’s content, are narrowly tailored to serve a significant government interest, and leave open ample alternative channels for communication of the information or message.

The bill states that it does not grant other members of the college or university community the right to disrupt previously scheduled or reserved activities in a portion or section of the student forum at that scheduled time. Additionally, the bill clarifies that it is not to be interpreted as preventing the public institution from prohibiting, limiting, or restricting expression that is not protected under the 1st Amendment.

A student who has been denied access to a student forum for expressive purposes may bring a court action to recover reasonable court costs and attorney fees.

HB 17 1085 WOMEN’S HEALTH PROTECTIONS ACT  

Concerning the adoption of the ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’.

CCC SUPPORTED THIS LEGISLATION

DESCRIPTION:  The bill requires all abortion clinics to file an annual registration with the attorney general. The attorney general shall create and make available the registration form. While keeping identifying information of any women who sought an abortion private, the registration form must include the following information:

The number of abortions performed at the clinic during the previous year, including the trimester in which the abortion was performed, based on appropriately maintained records kept by the clinic;

A specific report for each abortion performed at or after 20 weeks’ gestation;

A description of the method or methods of abortion performed at the clinic;

The name of each physician performing abortions at the clinic, along with the state of each physician’s licensure, any board certifications or specialties maintained by the physician, and any disciplinary action taken against the physician in the last 5 years;

The number of babies born alive at the clinic during the year, whether the babies were born prior to, during, or after the attempted completion of an abortion, whether or not these babies survived, whether or not they were viable, and whether or not they were transported to a hospital; and

The number of patients, including women and born-alive infants, who were transported to a hospital from the clinic following a partially or fully completed abortion in the previous year.

The attorney general has 30 days to reject an inaccurate or incomplete registration form and 30 days from the date of discovery to reject a form that contains false or fraudulent information. Failure to file a registration form or operating without a registration form subjects an abortion clinic to a fine, a suspension, or closure. All registration forms and inspection or investigation forms are public records.

The attorney general has a duty to inspect, without notice, each registered abortion clinic at least annually. At a minimum, each inspection must determine whether the abortion clinic is performing abortions at or after 20 weeks’ gestation and whether it is operating with:

Medically modern ultrasound equipment;

Equipment to preserve the life of and to resuscitate born-alive infants;

Legally approved methods of medical and hazardous waste disposal;

Medically safe standards for sterilization of instruments and procedure areas and storage, medically safe policies for expired and opened medicines, and emergency exits sufficient to accommodate a stretcher or gurney; and

Proper ‘Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996’ policies.

If the attorney general finds an inspection violation, he or she may impose a fine up to $5,000 or impose a suspension or closure of the abortion clinic.

HB 17 1187 CHANGE EXCESS STATE REVENUES CAP GROWTH FACTOR

CCC SUPPORTED THIS LEGISLATION

Concerning a change to the growth factor in the excess state revenues cap.

DESCRIPTION:  In 2005, voters approved Referendum C, which is a voter-approved revenue change to the TABOR fiscal year spending limit. Under the referendum, the state is permitted to retain and spend all state revenues up to the excess state revenues cap. The excess state revenues cap is adjusted annually for inflation and population changes, among other things.

The bill modifies the excess state revenues cap by allowing an annual adjustment for an increase based on the average annual change of Colorado personal income over the last 5 years, rather than adjusting for inflation and population. Colorado personal income is the total personal income for Colorado as reported by a federal agency. As the modification may increase the amount that the state retains and spends in a given fiscal year, the bill seeks voter approval for the change, as required by TABOR.
