The Statutory Revisions Committee (“SRC”) is the largest standing committee of the Trust & Estate Section of the Colorado Bar Association. It meets from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month, except June and July. As its name suggests, this committee’s principal function is to critically examine and when needed revise existing probate law and consider proposals for new probate law. In order to accomplish that, it forms subcommittees to debate, draft, and promote changes to Colorado’s probate statutes. Their work product is then approved or not at the monthly meeting of the SRC.

Specifically, the SRC reviews Uniform Acts on subject matters related to trusts and estates that are proposed for adoption by the Uniform Law Commission (f/k/a The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws). The SRC also receives and considers input and requests from probate lawyers statewide on issues, concerns, clarifications, and improvements related to existing statutes, and it responds to proposed legislation effecting probate laws introduced by third parties. The SRC’s general approach and philosophy is to build consensus on clarifying, improving and promoting Colorado probate law. 

Finally, the SRC, working through its subcommittees, drafts legislation and provides speakers to present that legislation for approval bythe Colorado Bar Association’s Legislative PolicyCommittee and to testify at legislative hearings and work with its legislative sponsors during the political process of enacting its legislation.

The SRC solicits and encourages open and active participation in its work product by all members of the Trust & Estate Section of the Colorado Bar Association and by third parties interested in the work of the Section.

Meets at 1:30 on Super Thursday (the third Thursday of each month)
