HB 1111 would require the state attorney general to organize and provide a mandatory training session for all Colorado Civil Rights Commission members regarding the state’s obligation of religious neutrality and consistency when considering claims that involve freedom of speech or free exercise of religion under the first amendment of the United States constitution.

The bill’s legislative declaration highlights the Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case, in which the United States Supreme Court held that the Commission’s order requiring a local baker to stop discriminating against same-sex couples by refusing to sell them wedding cakes must be set aside due to the Commission’s treatment the baker’s religious beliefs.
