Colorado Revised Statutes

The Office of Legislative Legal Services edits, collates, and revises the laws enacted each session, with annotations, and prints them each year. Since 1997, the official set of statutes has been published each year in a softbound edition as well as an official CD-ROM edition.

The Office of Legislative Legal Services maintains distribution lists of the government agencies that receive the Colorado Revised Statutes and Session Laws free of charge. Currently the Office of Legislative Legal Services distributes more than 3,000 sets of Colorado Revised Statutes and 1,000 sets of Session Laws. If you are qualified to be on this list and do not presently receive your statutes from the state or if you wish to increase or decrease your current number of sets, please click here to open the request form.

Those Seeking Printouts of Statutes

The Office of Legislative Legal Services can provide electronic copies of specified portions of the Colorado Revised Statutes without charge. Additional fees will apply if you: need your printout certified; request paper or CD-ROM delivery; or request editorial material to be included in your printout. Editorial material consists of source notes, editor's notes, cross references, and annotations. Access the Colorado Revised Statutes Printout Request Form here.

Those Seeking to Publish, Reprint, or Distribute the Colorado Revised Statutes

Colorado law recognizes that persons, agencies, or political subdivisions, other than the General Assembly, may seek to publish, reprint, or distribute the statutes of the state of Colorado, in print format, digital format, or both. See 2-5-118, C.R.S.

Any person, agency, or political subdivision seeking to do so, by using the statutory database containing the official text of the statutes as prepared by the General Assembly, should view charges for purchasing the database and contact the Office of Legislative Legal Services for further information.
