Federal law requires a state to comply with federal requirements
regarding effective control, as described in federal law, of outdoor
advertising along federal-aid highways (outdoor advertising) or be subject
to the loss of 10% of its federal-aid highway funding. State law authorizes
the department of transportation (CDOT) to adopt rules governing
outdoor advertising but also, to ensure that the state does not lose any
federal-aid highway funding, specifies that state law does not authorize
the erection or maintenance of advertising devices that would disqualify
the state from receiving federal-aid highway funding made available to
states that exercise effective control of outdoor advertising (complying
state funding).
CDOT has adopted rules governing outdoor advertising in
Colorado (the rules) for the purpose of establishing effective control
through a statewide uniform program controlling the use of advertising
devices in areas adjacent to the state highway system, but certain persons
have alleged that CDOT's rules allow or might allow advertising devices
to be erected and maintained that would disqualify the state from
receiving complying state funding. The bill requires CDOT to hold a
public hearing, on or before October 1, 2024, at which any person may
identify any provision of the rules that the person believes allows or
might allow the erection or maintenance of any advertising device that
would disqualify the state from receiving complying state funding
(disqualifying provision). CDOT shall review any provision identified
and, if CDOT determines that the provision is a disqualifying provision,
shall conduct new rule making to repeal or amend the disqualifying
provision to mitigate the risk of losing complying state funding.
