C.R.S. Section 2-5-103
Preparation of Colorado Revised Statutes


In compiling, editing, arranging, and preparing the statutes, the revisor, under the supervision and direction of the committee, shall:


Adopt a uniform system of punctuation, capitalization, and wording;


Eliminate all obsolete and redundant wording of laws;


Correct obvious errors and inconsistencies;


Correct inaccurate references to the titles of officers, departments, or other agencies of the state and to other statutes, and make such other name changes as are necessary to be consistent with the law currently in effect;


Eliminate any duplications in law and any laws repealed directly or by implication; and


Clarify existing laws, modernize terminology, and make such other nonsubstantive changes as the committee considers proper.


The revisor shall make no change in the substance of any statute but may make such changes in arrangement and terminology as will, in the judgment of the committee, improve the style and clarity of the laws, yet preserve the intent, effect, and meaning of each statutory provision.


The revisor, with the approval of the committee, may employ such additional professional and clerical staff, within limits of appropriations, as may be necessary for the preparation and publication of the statutes under this article. In addition, the committee may obtain, by contract, such technical and professional assistance as it deems advisable for the efficient and accurate preparation and publication of such statutes, including but not limited to preparation of annotations and indices.
