BSA: Colorado AI Bill Requires Continued Work to Implement

WASHINGTON, DC – BSA | The Software Alliance Senior Vice President of US Government Relations Craig Albright issued the following statement regarding Colorado SB205, legislation in that state affecting high-risk uses of artificial intelligence (AI):

“BSA | The Software Alliance appreciates the work of Colorado legislators and Senate Majority Leader Robert Rodriguez to advance important legislation, Colorado SB205, to manage high-risk uses of AI. States continue to meaningfully contribute to the debate over AI policy in the US.

Colorado SB 205, like Connecticut SB 2, rightly focuses on high-risk uses of AI and requires the use of meaningful tools like impact assessments and risk management programs to combat discrimination. BSA remains concerned about aspects of the legislation that do not reflect the roles of different businesses within the AI value chain. It is important for legislation to reflect these different roles, and BSA encourages policymakers to look toward the rulemaking processes established by the legislation to create a stronger and more workable AI policy environment.

National technology laws remain the best way to promote trust in AI and its broad adoption, and BSA continues to urge Congress to pass legislation to specifically address high-risk uses of AI. Absent federal AI legislation, state legislative leaders should continue to emphasize consistency and workability in AI policy."

BSA previously outlined its feedback on an earlier version of SB205 in a letter sent in late April of this year.
