Legislative Audit Committee. Under current law, when the public
utilities commission (PUC) evaluates electric resource acquisitions and
requests for certificates of public convenience and necessity for
construction or expansion of generating facilities, the PUC must consider
best value regarding employment of Colorado labor and positive impacts
on the long-term economic viability of Colorado communities. To this
end, the PUC must require electric utilities to obtain certain information
regarding certain best value employment metrics and report this
information to the PUC for its consideration.
The bill:
  • Requires the PUC to promulgate rules requiring utilities,
when submitting annual progress reports for an electric
resource acquisition, to collect and provide to the PUC
information concerning the implementation of best value
employment metrics;
  • Requires the PUC to report annually to committees of
reference of the general assembly concerning the
information that is reported; and
  • Repeals language requiring the state auditor to conduct a
performance audit, which performance audit the state
auditor completed in July 2022.
