Legislative and Government Affairs
LTAC supports a comprehensive effort to ensure that the concerns of our members’ are heard in the Colorado Capitol. We engage a full-time lobbyist to work on our behalf throughout the 120-day legislative session, and our Legislative Committee, made up of 30 or so LTAC members, contributes thoughtful industry expertise to the legislative process. We also sponsor an annual Legislative Meet and Greet, providing an opportunity for all LTAC members to meet and discuss with their legislators issues facing the industry.
As an organization, and through the hard work of our Legislative Committee, we identify key bills each session that could impact the title insurance industry. Legislative Committee members are assigned bills to monitor, research and analyze. Cathy Wanstrath, our lobbyist, provides an ongoing (sometimes up-to-the minute) calendar of this legislation as it travels through the Colorado House and Senate.
In addition to our interaction with legislators, LTAC also works closely with the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) to ensure the creation of appropriate and effective rules and enforcement vehicles for the title insurance industry. We serve as an informed and respected voice regarding real estate transactions in Colorado.
