Capitol ID Card Bill Scheduled For House Committee Hearing Next Week

Posted: March 27, 2018

Capitol ID Card legislation, which passed third and final reading in the Colorado Senate, moves next week to the Colorado House's State, Veterans, & Military Affairs, where its future is much in doubt despite overwhelming support among lobbyists surveyed by the Colorado Lobbyists Association.

More than 91% of Colorado lobbyists (members and non-members of CLA) surveyed support an ID-card bypass, and CLA this year has conducted a “Capitol Clear” campaign to bring awareness to the issue. 

But a majority of Democrats who have voted so far have opposed the legislation, citing objections from the Colorado State Patrol.

Proponents insist that the issuance of security bypass cards will enhance security because scores of people will -- for the first time -- voluntarily undergo CBI fingerprint-based background checks and will bypass metal detectors only if approved by the State Patrol. The card will speed up service for others who come less frequently to the Capitol or don't want to pay the $100 price of the card. 

SB18-116 is second on the calendar on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. The hearing is 1:30 p.m. in Room LSB-A.
