DORA Regulatory Notice: State Board of Human Services - General Rules for Child Care Facilities

The Department of Human Services - State Board of Human Services will be holding a rulemaking hearing on Friday, July 6th, 2018, 10:00 am on rules regarding General Rules for Child Care Facilities,. The hearing will be held at: 1575 Sherman Street, 8th Floor, Denver CO 80203.

The purpose of this rulemaking is:

The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act statutorily requires that States which receive funds implement the requirements of the CCDBG Act Sec. 658H Criminal Background Checks. The Department is statutorily mandated to have in effect requirements, policies, and procedures to require and conduct criminal background checks for child care staff members, as well as, licensing, regulation, and registration requirements that prohibit the employment of child care staff members with disqualifying crimes. This package adds requirements as required by the CCDBG Act that must be effective by September 30, 2018.

If you believe there will be a significant negative impact on small business, job creation or economic competitiveness, you may request that the Department of Regulatory Agencies require the rulemaking agency to prepare a cost-benefit analysis of a proposed rule or amendment. This request must be made to the Department of Regulatory Agencies by Friday, June 15th, 2018.

You may also submit comments directly to the rulemaking agency for the agency's consideration during the upcoming rulemaking hearing.
