HB 13-1289: Allowing Electronic Transmission of Motor Vehicle Titling and Lien Information

On April 2, 2013, Rep. Dominick Moreno and Sen. Cheri Jahn introduced HB 12-1289 – Concerning Authority for the Electronic Transmission of Information Relating to Motor Vehicles. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.

As amended in the House, the bill provides authority to the department of revenue to establish a system to allow the electronic registration and titling of motor vehicles and electronic transmission of motor vehicle lien information. The title certificate is considered to be held by the mortgage or lien holder when an electronic mortgage or lien is used. A copy of the electronic mortgage or lien is admissible as evidence in judicial or administrative proceedings. The department is authorized to accept gifts, grants, or donations into the electronic motor vehicle registration cash fund but may not accept them from a vendor who responds to a request for proposal from the department concerning the new system for electronic registration and titling of motor vehicles.

On April 17 the House passed the bill on 3rd and final reading; it has been assigned to the Transportation Committee in the Senate.
