​Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Citizen Petition Process​

Are you interested in creating a new Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) regulation or modifying or removing an existing rule? Colorado State Statute 24-4-103(7) gives any interested person the right to petition for the issuance, amendment, or repeal of any state rule. A written citizen petition is required to initiate such a process. 

Please note, the CPW Commission updated its policy on citizen petitions, and accompanying regulations, in April 2020. 

For more information regarding citizen petitions please see the Citizen Petition Packet.
