House Bill 16-1367 – “County Categories For Officers For Salary Purposes”

Concerning the re-categorization of certain counties for the purpose of determining salaries paid to county officers in those counties.

Summary:

Prior to 2015, counties were classified into primary categories I to VII for purposes of determining the salaries of county officers. Four subcategories, A to D, were added to each primary category in 2015, which would result in the following percentage increases for terms beginning on or after January 1, 2016:

  • Subcategory A: 30% increase;
  • Subcategory B: 20% increase;
  • Subcategory C: 10% increase; and
  • Subcategory D: No increase.

All counties were classified in subcategory A of their respective primary categories, which would have resulted in a 30% increase for all county officers in the state. The act modifies the classifications of certain counties, resulting in smaller increases for officers from these counties.

House Bill 16-1373 – “Student Medical Marijuana Use at School”

Concerning requiring school districts to adopt a policy permitting the use of medical marijuana by students authorized to use medical marijuana.

Summary:

The act allows a student to use medical marijuana on school grounds, on a school bus, or at a school activity if the student’s primary caregiver possesses and administers medical marijuana in a non-smoke-able form to the student. The primary caregiver shall not administer the medical marijuana in a manner that is disruptive to the educational environment or causes exposure to other students. After the primary caregiver administers the medical marijuana, the primary caregiver shall remove any remaining medical marijuana from the grounds of the preschool or primary or secondary school, the school bus, or school sponsored event. The act allows a school district to adopt policies regarding who may be a primary caregiver and the permissible circumstances regarding the administration of the medical marijuana.

The act does not apply to a school district or charter school if:

  • The school district or charter school loses federal funding as a result of implementing the act;
  • The school district or charter school can reasonably demonstrate that it lost federal funding as a result of implementing the act; and
  • The school district or charter school posts on its website in a conspicuous place a statement regarding its decision not to comply with the act.

The act prohibits a school district or charter school from disciplining a student or denying eligibility to attend school to a student who holds a valid recommendation for medical marijuana solely because the student requires medical marijuana in a non-smoke-able form as a reasonable accommodation necessary for the child to attend school.
