Dylan Metzner has assumed the chair position of the Statutory Revisions Committee, the largest standing committee of the Trust & Estate Section of the Colorado Bar Association. The committee function is to preserve and enhance the practice of trust and estate law in Colorado by participating in the statutory revision process.
Dylan was co-chair for the 2020-2021 year before assuming the chair in August 2021 for a term that ends in May 2022. Throughout the year, the committee actively monitors proposed legislation to determine its potential impact on the trust and estate practice. When action is advisable, the committee will work with sponsors and other interest groups to ensure that consistency and cohesion with existing law is achieved.
Additionally, the committee often proposes legislation if statutory changes are needed or desired. With the permission of the CBA’s Legislative Policy Committee, members of the committee may testify in support or opposition of proposed legislation, such as its recent work on Uniform Acts relating to the trust and estate practice, which are proposed for adoption by the Uniform Law Commission (f/k/a The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws). In his role as Chair, Dylan oversees the various subcommittees charged with reviewing, revising and drafting legislation for committee vote.
The committee seeks and considers input from trust and estate lawyers throughout the State of Colorado in order to build consensus on clarifying, improving and promoting trust and estate law in Colorado. The committee meets between 1:30 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. on the First Wednesday of each month (except June and July).
