What is a Sunset Review?

The concept of sunset originated in Colorado in 1976 as a legislative response to problems with regulatory boards.  Many states have sunset provisions and the specific provisions may differ among states. The Colorado General Assembly sets specific dates that a particular agency, board, or function of government will terminate unless the legislature passes new legislation to continue.   So, the “sun sets” on that part of government if it is not reauthorized. In Colorado, a sunset review will generally question the need for regulation to protect the public.  If regulation is determined to be needed, the sunset review will look for the least restrictive level of regulation consistent with the public interest.


Who Conducts the Sunset Review?

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies' Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform, is charged by statute to conduct a Sunset Review of the entity or function and produce a report of its findings and recommendations prior to the agencies' sunset. A sunset review discusses whether the agency or function under review should be continued without changes, continued with changes or terminated.  Reviews are conducted according to statutory review schedule and according to statutory criteria.


What is the CCA doing now?

The CCA has put together a Sunset Taskforce and has already started making efforts to review our current scope of practice. Look to the CCA to continue an open line of communication with other specialty groups in Colorado as we continue to elevate healthcare in Colorado. We will be holding an open Stakeholders meeting in the future where we invite all chiropractors to participate and submit their suggestions. 


How can you help?

We need your help and support to join the CCA NOW. The CCA is taking every step to protect your current practice act and in return, we need your body as a member of the largest association who will be lobbying for your rights throughout this entire process. Have you heard what happened in Texas? If not, be sure to check out the Texas Chiropractic Association as we work to prepare should that happen in Colorado. This is serious, and we hope you will get involved. This process is going to be a 2+ year process that we are starting now! This is not a time to sit on the sidelines! Your rights to practice are at risk! Be sure to look to future Stakeholder meetings and a way to provide your feedback on what matters most to you! We want to hear from you!
