CMLA is YOUR Legislative Advocate in the Mortgage Industry
Remote Online Notarization Bill is Passed by Colorado Legislature

The Colorado legislature unanimously passed legislation authorizing Remote Online Notarization in Colorado (SB20-096). The legislation was sent to Governor Polis and is awaiting his signature. This is a significant win for the mortgage industry in Colorado and is the culmination of more than four years of work by CMLA and our coalition of industry partners. More details regarding the legislation will be provided once it has been signed by the Governor.
Dieter Raemdonck
CMLA Registered Lobbyist

Dieter Raemdonck is the registered lobbyist for CMLA and his practice is focused primarily on government relations matters at the federal, state, and local levels.
The Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee (LARAC) meets monthly to review proposed legislation and regulatory developments. We routinely comment on legislative and regulatory proposals to state and federal agencies, are active members of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and we attend the MBA’s National Policy Conference to engage with the Colorado Delegation in Washington, D.C.
