The bill requires the department of transportation (CDOT) to
convene and engage in robust consultation with a stakeholder group
comprised of representatives of specified industries, workers,
governmental entities, planning organizations, and interest groups that
will potentially be affected by the adoption of new and emerging
transportation technologies and business models. The stakeholder group
is required to:
  • Examine the economic, environmental, and transportation
system impacts of the adoption of new and emerging
transportation technologies and business models;
  • Identify potential means of addressing the impacts that
increase positive impacts and mitigate negative impacts;
  • Present to CDOT, no later than November 1, 2019, a report
of policy recommendations regarding the impacts examined
and means of addressing those impacts with funding from
the imposition of fees on the use of motor vehicles used for
commercial purposes, as defined by the bill. The report
must identify potential fees that are structured and
reasonably calculated to:
  • Avoid causing the state to incur new or additional
obligations to refund excess state revenue;
  • Generate sufficient revenue for the state and local
governments to mitigate specified impacts to the
transportation system;
  • Fund needed transportation infrastructure, including
multimodal infrastructure and the infrastructure
needed to support the adoption of zero-emissions
  • Defray the administrative costs of fee collection;
  • Incentivize the adoption of zero-emissions vehicles
for utilization as motor vehicles used for
commercial purposes; and
  • Incentivize multiple passenger ride sharing for
motor vehicles used for commercial purposes and
the use of such vehicles as a first and last mile
solution for users of public transit.
CDOT is required to report on the progress and policy
recommendations of the stakeholder group, CDOT's preliminary plans
and recommendations regarding the development and promulgation of
rules, and any recommendations that CDOT has regarding the need for
related legislation during its 2019 annual presentation to legislative
oversight committees required by the State Measurement for
Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act.
No later than October 1, 2020, within any statutory parameters established
by the general assembly through legislation enacted during the 2020
legislative session, and giving strong consideration to the policy
recommendations report provided by the stakeholder group, CDOT is
required to promulgate rules to the extent necessary to effectively
implement the bill. If the general assembly does not impose fees on motor
vehicles used for commercial purposes through legislation enacted during
the 2020 legislative session and instead enacts legislation that authorizes
CDOT or any CDOT enterprise to impose such fees, the rules may
impose fees to the extent authorized by the legislation. During the 2020
legislative interim, CDOT must present a final written report regarding
the stakeholder group, rule-making processes, and rules promulgated to
the transportation legislation review committee.
