Perlmutter issued a statement Friday saying that while no one's to blame, changes are needed to reflect the concerns of families.
Concerns raised by the families of 10 of the 12 people killed and at least 12 of the injured include the length of time it's taking to distribute $5.2 million raised by the Community First Foundation, as well as the possibility that mental health fees will be paid from the fund.
They're asking Perlmutter, Gov. John Hickenlooper and the state's two senators to use their influence to place the money into a fund overseen by an independent arbitrator.
The special advisor to the 7/20 Recovery Committee says the group remains committed to an "inclusive process that honors the input of all victims, and not just the voices of a few."
