On March 28, 2014, Rep. Lois Court and Sen. Linda Newell introduced HB 14-1347 – Concerning Statutorily Established Time Periods that are Multiples of Seven Days. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
The bill changes time periods in certain court proceedings to 7-day periods or periods that are multiples of 7 days to avoid actions being due on weekends. Similar changes to 7-day periods or periods that are multiples of 7 days were made to the Colorado Revised Statutes in 2012, pursuant to Senate Bill 12-175. The CBA LPC has voted to support this legislation.
On April 25, the bill passed 3rd Reading in the Senate and is now on its way to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk for signature.
