Statutes and Rules
State laws and federal regulations dictate activities of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC). State laws exist that identify mandatory requirements for the regulation of all utilities, and that create programs, like the Colorado No Call List.
Click a button to the left to access the state laws that appear in the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) or in Commission Rules, or to access the federal regulations that appear in the Federal Register.
The official repository for all Colorado State agencies' rules, including Commission rules, is maintained by the Secretary of State. A link to the Code of Colorado Regulations on the Secretary of State website is provided at left.
The PUC conducts rulemaking when it is required or permitted by law to make rules in order to establish procedures. Rulemaking accords interested persons an opportunity to participate in the Commission's formulation, amendment, or repeal of a rule. A link to Current PUC Rulemaking is provided at left.
Published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Federal Register is the official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents.
The United States Code is the codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States. It is divided by broad subjects into 50 titles and published by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives.
