Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Colorado provides for administrative, civil, and criminal penalties for violations of its environmental and hazardous materials transportation laws. The sanctions listed in the Table are applicable only on a state level and are in addition to penalties that the federal government may impose.
Colorado is not a "state plan" state.
