Here are the notes from the meeting last Wednesday (via Ben Wade at the CWCB). Here’s an excerpt:

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 58% of the state is now experiencing D0, D1 or D2 status, which represents abnormally dry, drought moderate and drought severe conditions respectively. The drought conditions that have covered the eastern plains of the state throughout the fall have continued to deteriorate with D0, D1 and D2 covering much of Colorado east of the divide. A small portion of Huerfano County has recently experienced moisture that has brought some relief from the D2 conditions. However this region is still experiencing D1 conditions.
