Colorado Administrative Law Research

This guide provides an overview of the Colorado executive branch and the law it produces through its regulations, agency decisions, and attorney general opinions.

Administrative Agencies

To support the executive branch officers in executing and enforcing the laws of the state, the executive branch also includes a large number of different state boards, commissions, offices and agencies.  Additionally, to further support the enforcement of and compliance with the laws of the state, the legislative branch often grants these state agencies quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial authority.  When granted this authority, state agencies may promulgate rules and adjudicate matters regarding those rules.

A list of agencies, their functions and contact information can be obtained on the State of Colorado website under State Agencies.
