  No. 03SA133 & No. 03SA147. Salazar v. Davidson: Constitutional Law, Legislative Branch, Election Law, Redistricting ...
For example, in 1964, when the General Assembly had not drawn new districts for over forty years, the four congressional districts ranged in population from 195,551 to 653,954; one person’s vote in the smallest district was equivalent to the votes of 3.3 people in the largest district.
The General Assembly shall divide the state into as many congressional districts as there are representatives in congress apportioned to this state by the congress of the United States for the election of one representative to congress from each district.
Colorado law could not be clearer with respect to the meaning of the term "General Assembly." Article V itself defines the General Assembly as "the senate and house of representatives, both to be elected by the people." The term neither needs nor permits any further semantic gymnastics.

 ASLCS - The Journal - Attorney-Client Relationship & Legislative Lawyers
Generally, the attorney-client relationship is established when it is shown that a client seeks and receives the advice of a lawyer on the legal consequences of the client's past or contemplated actions.
At least one result of Colorado's approach is to avoid the appearance that each of the one hundred legislators is a client and that a legislative lawyer is plagued with widespread conflict of interest problems in working with legislators in the bill and amendment drafting process.
General examples of such a situation include a legislator who insists on taking any action violative of rules or statutes that is not in the best interests of the legislature as an institution.

 CADP Colorado Legislature -- 2002
Colorado lawmakers hit some snags Tuesday in their effort to rush a new death penalty law to the governor.
Colorado legislators gather Monday to rewrite the state's death penalty law, and they have a choice -- take a safe tact that probably can't be challenged in court, or push the envelope.
Colorado legislators may have to pass a new death penalty law to bring the state into compliance with Monday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that maintains only juries can impose the death penalty, a preliminary analysis by Gov. Bill Owens' staff indicates.

While the General Assembly might have set forth detailed definitions covering all the state and federal crimes which would qualify one as a "previous offender," there was no need to follow that wasteful, verbose technique.
Here the broad, general intent was merely to delineate a category of prior crimes whose general nature, in the General Assembly's judgment, was so serious that their perpetrators could not safely be allowed to possess weapons in Colorado.
In Colorado, however, second-degree burglary is defined as breaking an entrance into or Unlawfully entering or remaining in a building with intent to commit a crime against a person or property.

 About the Colorado River District   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Colorado River District was born out of a period of conflict between the two halves of Colorado separated by the Continental Divide: the drier and more population-dense East Slope and the West Slope with its more substantial water resources.
In Western Colorado, the C-BT brought considerable fear, since diverting such a large volume as proposed, 310,000 acre-feet, would diminish the flow of the Colorado River to the point where West Slope farmers would soon be suffering the same fate that their East Slope counterparts were trying to avoid.
The Colorado River District is governed by a Board of Directors composed of one representative from each of the 15 counties in the district.

The Colorado Supreme Court approved the Commission's revised plan which cured the inadvertent split of a community of interest in Douglas County and which kept the City of Aspen whole, even though it continued to split Pitkin County.
The General Assembly moved to dismiss on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction over the General Assembly and had no power to direct the General Assembly to act.
The federal district court held that plaintiffs failed to establish their § 2 VRA claim because: (1) their suggested district did not satisfy compactness requirements; (2) the minority group was not politically cohesive; (3) other reasons besides race may explain voting behavior; and (4) the totality of the circumstances did not establish vote dilution.

Because of term limits, the General Assembly is facing these tough times with less experience than ever before, she said.

Acting on behalf of several voters in the Denver area, Andres Lucas sued various officials connected with Colorado's elections challenging the apportionment of seats in both houses of the Colorado General Assembly.
Under Colorado's apportionment plan, the House of Representatives was apportioned on the basis of population but the apportionment of the Senate was based on a combination of population and other factors (geography, compactness and contiguity, accessibility, natural boundaries, and conformity to historical divisions).
The apportionment of Colorado's Senate rendered population considerations virtually insignificant, and was therefore unconstitutional.

 Colorado Motorist Insurance Identification Program   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In an effort to reduce the risk to the Citizens of Colorado from uninsured motor vehicles operating on Colorado highways, the 1997 Colorado General Assembly enacted a three year program to identify uninsured motorists and to assist in the enforcement of automobile liability insurance requirements of the state.
The underlying rationale for the program is that if there are fewer uninsured motorists operating on the highways, the number of uninsured accidents will decline.
The purpose of the Colorado Motorist Insurance Identification Program is to provide an online tool to law enforcement officials and the Motor Vehicle Division to determine whether reasonable grounds exist to believe that a person is operating a vehicle without the minimum liability insurance required by Colorado law.
