Who sets the assessment rate?

The Colorado Constitution requires that a specific relationship be maintained, on a statewide basis, between the assessed value of residential property and the assessed value of non-residential property. The state legislature sets the residential assessment rate once every 2 years to maintain that relationship. The current assessment rate for all residential properties is 7.15%. All other properties are assessed at 29% of actual value.
