COPRRR

What is COPRRR?

Colorado regulates many professions, occupations and businesses to support a fair marketplace and protect consumers. The Colorado Office of Policy, Research & Regulatory Reform (COPRRR) reviews proposed regulatory programs to determine if they are needed, and it also reviews existing programs and functions of government to ensure they are necessary, fair, effective and efficient.

What we do

How does the Regulatory Review Process work? 


Sunrise and Sunset reviews are COPRRR's primary focus. COPRRR staff conduct a comprehensive study and then make recommendations to the Colorado General Assembly. COPRRR staff also make recommendations as to whether to continue the programs under review, and can also recommend additional changes to the General Assembly. Public input is vital to COPRRRs work and the regulatory reform process. Find out more in our Citizen's Guide to Colorado Rulemaking
