Colorado Revised Statutes Title 15. Probate, Trusts, and Fiduciaries § 15-14-725. Incorporation of authority--incorporation by reference

(1) An agent has authority described in this part 7 if the power of attorney refers to general authority with respect to the descriptive term for the subjects stated in sections 15-14-727 to 15-14-740 or cites the section in which the authority is described.

(2) A reference in a power of attorney to general authority with respect to the descriptive term for a subject in sections 15-14-727 to 15-14-740 or a citation to a section of sections 15-14-727 to 15-14-740 incorporates the entire section as if it were set out in full in the power of attorney.

(2.5) In addition to the incorporation of authority as provided in subsections (1) and (2) of this section, a writing or other record in existence when a power of attorney is executed may be incorporated by reference if the language of the power of attorney manifests this intent and describes the writing or other record sufficiently to permit its identification.  A writing or other record so incorporated by reference is considered as set out in full in the power of attorney.

(3) A principal may modify authority or a writing or other record incorporated by reference.
