To improve the operational efficiency of the front range passenger
rail district (district):
  • Section 1 of the bill replaces the requirement that the board
of the district (board) hold annual joint meetings with the
transportation commission, the board of directors of the
I-70 coalition or any successor entity, and the board of
directors of the regional transportation district with a
requirement that the board provide an annual update, which
may be provided by district staff and may be provided
electronically, to each of those entities;
  • Section 2 eliminates the requirement that board directors
appointed by transportation planning organizations be
confirmed by the senate; clarifies when the terms of board
members begin and end; and prohibits an advisory
nonvoting member of the board from participating in an
executive session if the board determines that a particular
matter to be discussed in the executive session concerns the
appointing authority for the advisory nonvoting member
and should not be discussed when the advisory nonvoting
member is present;
  • Section 3 establishes that the board exercises its powers by
a majority vote of a quorum of its voting directors rather
than by a majority vote of a quorum of its total membership
and, in conjunction with section 4, clarifies that the board
has discretion to delegate its power to enter into contracts
and agreements other than intergovernmental agreements
and contracts for public-private partnerships to the officers
and employees of the district; and
  • Section 5 changes the name of a state-required district plan
for developing rail service to avoid potential confusion that
could be caused by similarity between the current name of
the plan and the name of a federally required plan.
