HB 15-1021: Continuing “Rule of Seven” Modifications to Colorado Revised Statutes

On January 7, 2015, Rep. Yeulin Willett and Sen. Michael Merrifield introduced HB 15-1021 — 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; in 2013, pursuant to House Bill 13-1126; and in 2014, pursuant to House Bill 14-1347.

The bill was assigned to the House Judiciary Committee, where it passed unamended. It also passed Second and Third Reading in the House with no amendments.
