LEGISLATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • In 1992, (Crime Victim Bill of Rights) David Stiver sought the support of Representative Tom Ratterree (R-18) to sponsor the legislation in the House. The language submitted by David Stiver included: 1) The Right of Crime Victims to be notified if a defendant expires while incarcerated, 2) To have the District Attorney intervene in any Collection Activities for services received by a Crime Victim as the result of a crime, and 3) Any Order for Restitution by the court is a "Final Order" and cannot be "WAIVED" or 'DISCHARGED" without a hearing. The Crime Victim Bill of Rights was passed by Colorado voters with 80% statewide, and 82% in El Paso County.
  • In 2013, the Bipartisan Colorado General Assembly passed House Bill 13-1277 creating the Community Association Manager (CAM) licensing program. At that time David Stiver argued with the Department of Regulatory Agencies during its Rulemaking Process that enforcement of the rules were: 1) a government sanctioned monopoly, 2) that it was disparate enforcement, and 3) it was a violation of a licensee's Due Process Rights. The law took effect on July 1, 2015.
  • In 2017, David Stiver appeared befor the Colorado Office of Policy, Research, and Regulatory Reform (COPRRR) with the same arguments. Several of the issues by David Stiver appeared in the 2017 Sunset Review report to the legislature.
  • In 2018, relying upon much of the language contained in the 2017 report, and the testimony (the sole individual in opposition to the renewal of the program, the Republican led Senate Finance Committee refused to renew the legislation thereby placing it into windown status.
  • In 2019, HB 19-1212 was introduced by Democrat sponsors, Democrat co-sponsors, and amended approximately 21 times by the Democrat body and leadership. Instead of renewing the program for an additional five (5) years the legislation was sent to the governor's desk with a one (1) year extension. On May 31, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. Governor Jared Polis wrote the following on the bill "DISAPPROVED" and "VETOED." This removed an entire Chapter 5, from the Colordo Real Estate Manual (some 173 pages in 3pt font).
