How to Address the Colorado AI Act’s “Complex Compliance Regime”

Last month, Colorado’s governor reluctantly signed the country’s first broadly applicable AI law, lamenting that it imposes on companies a “complex compliance regime” and urging legislators to improve it before its 2026 effective date. The law targets discrimination from AI use – a narrower focus than the E.U.

This article provides key takeaways about the Colorado law’s scope, challenges and significant terms, as well as practical steps that companies can take to address its requirements, with commentary from Kagan and experts at Baker McKenzie, Davis Wright Tremaine and Husch Blackwell.
