Colorado Adopts Family Recognition Act Professor Joslin Helped Craft

On June 1, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed SB22-224, the “Donor-conceived Persons and Families of Donor-conceived Persons Protection Act,” into law. The act was approved in May by a unanimous vote in the state Senate and a 53-12 vote in the House.

It allows people conceived through assisted reproduction using gametes from unknown providers the ability to access information about the gamete provider. These provisions build off provisions from the Uniform Parentage Act of 2017, for which Professor Courtney Joslin served as the Reporter. Joslin, along with Professor Douglas NeJaime of Yale Law School, submitted testimony in support of the legislation.
