Action Alert
What works in California doesn't work for Colorado

Attend a talking points breakfast, then a Colorado Air Quality Control Commission meeting to stop Colorado from adopting California's vehicle emissions standards.

7:15 a.m. Thursday
February 15, 2018

Last year, new car dealers' physical presence at the seven-part franchise bill's Business Affairs & Labor Committee hearing was key to its passage.Now, your physical presence is needed to stop Colorado from adopting California's vehicle emissions standards!

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment is hearing a discussion to consider adopting California low-emission vehicle standards (Cal-LEV). This is a misguided policy that ultimately cedes authority for Colorado's air quality to California regulators, where standards on smog levels are based on cities like Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Francisco and Sacramento, rather than air quality in Aspen, Telluride, Colorado Springs or Denver.

Please join us for a pre-meeting breakfast, where we'll share talking points about this misguided policy. Then, join us in unified opposition as we walk across the street to the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) meeting.

During the AQCC meeting, CADA will briefly show that when it comes to air pollution, we're part of the solution, not the problem:
  • The new vehicles we sell are exceedingly clean and produce very low emissions. Every time a new car replaces an old one, total emissions decline.
  • We've voluntarily removed nearly 3,200 old, high-polluting vehicles through our non-profit organization, Clear the Air Foundation.
Please join us for the talking points breakfast, so we can demonstrate our solidarity on this important issue before the AQCC meeting.

Seating is limited to 40 in the meeting room, so RSVP today to reserve your seat!

Regulatory & Compliance
Salesperson Licensing:
New Fingerprinting Requirement
By Matthew Groves, VP Regulatory & Compliance

Effective March 1, 2018, there is a new requirement for a completed new salesperson license. In the 2017 session, the Legislature passed a sunset review bill, adding a requirement for fingerprints to be submitted alongside NEW salesperson license applications. Any application submitted without the fingerprint cards or form DR-2197 – Verification of Fingerprints - will be rejected as incomplete. This form will be posted to the Auto Industry Division website imminently. Or you can obtain by e-mailing

Importantly, this requirement does not impact License Renewal Applications. Nothing in this legislation will impact the renewal process for existing salespersons.

Fingerprints must be taken at a Law Enforcement Agency, or at the Auto Industry Division. This will include any Police Department or Sheriff’s Department within the state, but not private agencies run by former law enforcement officers. Many law enforcement agencies charge a fee for this service.

In addition, some have limited hours and will require appointment for fingerprints, or restrict the services to resident or employees within their respective counties. If you elect to go to the Auto Industry Division, no reservation is required and no residency restriction applies. In addition to the two fingerprint cards, new salespersons will also be required to submit $39.50 with their application to cover the costs of submission to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). These checks may be made payable to the Colorado Department of Revenue, or CDOR, and need not be in a separate check. One check covering the submission and the licensing fee is appropriate.

If you have any questions please send me an e-mail or call: 303.282.1449.
