HB 1061 and HB 1105 were signed into law in Colorado during the current legislative session.

HB-1061, created by Colorado Motor Carriers Association and sponsored by Reps. J Becker & Melton and Senators Scott & Todd, defines commercial vehicles at a weight of 16,000 pounds rather than at 10,000 pounds due to the state mandates.

HB 1105 narrows the circumstances in which physical inspection of a vehicle is required before issuing legal documentation identifying the vehicle. If the vehicle was purchased from an out-of-state owner/dealer, an additional VIN inspection in Colorado is no longer required.
