Committee. The bill implements the recommendations of the department

plumbing board (board).
Sections 3 and 26 of the bill continue the board for 13 years to

Section 13 authorizes the board to discipline plumbers who aid or
abet a person in violating the plumbing practice act or other statutes that
apply to plumbers.
Section 3 removes the statutory requirement that members of the
board be confirmed by the senate of the Colorado general assembly.
Section 3 removes the political affiliation requirement for the
board, which requires that a major political party not have more than one

regarding habitual or excessive use or abuse of controlled substances or

admonition by certified mail.
