Description of Subjects/Issues Consideration of Adoption of Rules and Regulations titled "Colorado Weather Modification Rules and Regulations," which provide regulation of and standards for weather modification in Colorado in accordance with the Weather Modification Act of 1972
Purpose/Objective of Rule The purpose of these Rules is to provide regulation of and standards for weather modification in Colorado in accordance with the legislative declaration provided by the Act, section 36-20-101, C.R.S. (2011), and pursuant to the legislative direction provided by section 36-20-107(3)(a).

The state of Colorado, through the Colorado General Assembly, recognizes the economic benefits that can be derived for the people of Colorado from weather modification, while minimizing possible adverse effects through implementation of proper safeguards and collection of accurate information. The Colorado General Assembly authorized the Director to issue permits applicable to weather modification operations pursuant to the Act, section 36-20-108(1), C.R.S. (2011). This direction is intended to ensure that weather modification operations implement proper safeguards and provide accurate information on operations.
