Bill: HB14-1012
Title: Advanced Industry Investment Income Tax Credit
Official Summary

The bill repeals the Colorado innovation investment tax credit and
replaces it with the advanced industry investment tax credit (tax credit).
The tax credit is available for a qualified investor who, prior to January
1, 2018, makes an equity investment in a qualified small business from
the advanced industries, which consists of advanced manufacturing,
aerospace, bioscience, electronics, energy and natural resources,
information technology, and infrastructure engineering. The tax credit is
equal to 25% of the investment or, if the qualified business is located in
a rural area or economically distressed area, it is equal to 30%. The
maximum amount of credit for a single tax credit is $50,000, and the
maximum of all tax credits allowed for a calendar year is $2 million;
except that unused tax credits from 2014 may roll over into 2015. A tax
credit may not be refunded, but it may be carried forward for 5 tax years.
The Colorado office of economic development (office) determines
the eligibility for the tax credit and issues nontransferable tax credit
certificates as evidence of eligibility and the amount of the tax credit. To
claim the tax credit, a taxpayer must submit a copy of the tax credit
certificate. The office and the department of revenue are required to share
information related to the tax credit. In 2017, the office is required to
submit to legislative committees a report that includes information about
the tax credits issued and the economic benefits from the related qualified
investments.
The state treasurer is required to transfer moneys from the repealed
innovation investment tax credit cash fund to the newly created advanced
industry investment tax credit cash fund. The general assembly shall
appropriate any moneys in the fund to the office for the direct and indirect
costs associated with the authorizing tax credits.

Bill: HB14-1193
Title: Research Retrieval Fees Public Records Under CORA
Official Summary

The bill allows a custodian of public records under the Colorado
Open Records Act to impose a fee in response to a request for the
research and retrieval of such records only if the custodian has, prior to
the date of receiving the request, either posted on the custodian's web site
or otherwise published a written policy that specifies the applicable
conditions concerning the research and retrieval of public records by the
custodian. Any fee the custodian charges the requestor for the research
and retrieval of public records must be nominal in comparison to the time
the custodian spends responding to the volume of requests. The bill
prohibits the custodian under any circumstances from charging an hourly
fee for the research and retrieval of public records that exceeds three
times the state minimum wage.
