Keypoint: The Colorado Attorney General’s office has received public comments on its short-list of universal opt out mechanism applicants and will need to identify any qualifying mechanism by January 1, 2024.

On December 13, 2023, the Colorado Attorney General’s Office closed the comment period for its short-list of potential universal opt-mechanisms (UOOMs). The Office had previously identified three potential UOOMs and asked for public comment on each. The Office received comments from both individuals and organizations.

In the below chart, we summarize the recommendations from organizations (not individuals) on whether the Colorado Attorney General’s office should approve the three candidates.

The Office must publish a public list of recognized UOOMs (if any) no later than January 1, 2024. Controllers have until July 1, 2024 to recognize any UOOM on that list.
