Sunset Review

The Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform (COPRRR) is conducting a sunset review of the Hearing Aid Provider program. Analysis in a sunset review is performed to determine whether the regulatory program is necessary and should be continued, modified or eliminated. This review will produce a report with recommendations to the Colorado General Assembly and result in subsequent legislation based on the recommendations in the report. Your input is an important component of a successful sunset review. If you would like to submit comments online, please visit COPRRR's website.
