On February 7, 2012, Rep. Keith Swerdfeger and Sen. Angela Giron introduced HB 12-1254 – Concerning the Reallocation of the Conservation Trust Fund to a Metropolitan District that Provides Parks and Recreation Services Within the Unincorporated Area of a County Only. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
The bill changes the reallocation of conservation trust fund moneys to a metropolitan district that provides parks and recreation services exclusively within the unincorporated area of a county from one-half of the percentage to the full percentage which the district’s population within the county is to the total population of the unincorporated area of the county. A metropolitan district may opt-out of the increased reallocation. On March 16, the Appropriations Committee amended the bill and moved it to the House floor for consideration on 2nd Reading.
Since this summary, the bill was laid over daily for Second Reading on March 20.
