Bill: HB14-1048
Title: Religious Freedom Higher Education Student Groups
Official Summary

include recognition, registration, use of institution facilities, use of
institution channels of communication, and available institution funding
sources.

Bill: SB14-103
Title: Phase In High-efficiency Water Fixture Options
Official Summary

The bill defines a watersense-listed plumbing fixture as one that
has been:
  • Tested by an accredited third-party certifying body or
laboratory in accordance with the federal environmental
protection agency's WaterSense program;
  • Certified by such body or laboratory as meeting the
performance and efficiency requirements of the program;
and
  • Authorized by the program to use its label.
Current law requires water-efficient indoor plumbing fixtures in
only three contexts:
  • Builders of new single-family detached residences must
offer the buyers toilets, faucets, and showerheads that meet
the current standards of the WaterSense program;
  • Tank-type water closets and flushometer toilets in new
state buildings must meet certain standards that are either
less stringent than or as stringent as the current WaterSense
standards; and
  • New construction and renovation of residential structures
and office, commercial, or industrial buildings must meet
standards that are less stringent than the current
WaterSense standards.
Section 1 of the bill prohibits the sale of lavatory faucets, shower
heads, flushing urinals, tank-type toilets, and tank-type water closets on
and after September 1, 2016, unless they are a watersense-listed plumbing
fixture. Sections 2 through 5 amend or repeal conflicting portions of
current law.
