Governor Signs Bill to Correct Typographical Error

On Monday, March 5, 2018, the governor signed one bill into law. To date, he has signed 30 bills this legislative session. The bill signed Monday, SB 18-105, made a correction to last session’s bill, HB 17-1367. The summary is as follows:

  • SB 18-105 – “Concerning Clarifying Changes to Provisions that were Contained in House Bill 17-1367,” by Sen. Randy Baumgardner and Rep. Dan Pabon. House Bill 17-1367 required that a state, local, or municipal agency only employ or use the results of marijuana tests if the tests were conducted by an analytical laboratory that was both certified by the state marijuana enforcement division (MED) and accredited pursuant to the International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission standard (international standard). The requirement that an analytical laboratory be both certified by the MED and accredited pursuant to the international standard was an inadvertent error. The intent was that an analytical laboratory could either be certified by the MED or accredited pursuant to the international standard. The bill changes the ‘and’ to an ‘or’ in order to effectuate the original intent.
