House Bill 19-1009 created the Opioid Crisis Recovery Funds Advisory Committee, which is tasked with advising and collaborating with the Department of Law on the use of any funds received by Colorado as a result of an opioid addiction-related settlement or damage award for which the use of the funds is not predetermined or committed by other orders.
The committee is comprised of 13 Governor appointees and 13 members of various organizations, who include representatives from state agencies, people impacted by the epidemic, medical professionals, law enforcement, advocacy organizations, and representatives from eastern and western Colorado.
