12 Mar 2017 Colorado Legislature



Since our last review, 76 new bills have been introduced. As usual most deal with adjustments to existing law. Many questions could be raised about the underlying bill, but the changes don’t seem to be too consequential. An example is included below.



Protect Colorado Residents From Federal Government Overreach

APPROVE, WITH SOME RESERVATIONS. Includes ‘immigration status’ which could lead to ‘sanctuary state’ of Colorado.



Financial Relief Defray Individual Health Plan Cost

This is the example of trying to fix what was a bad original law.



New Transportation Infrastructure Funding Revenue

OPPOSE—Raises taxes to the HUTF, of which a portion would be redirected to mass transit and bike paths.



Multimodal Transportation Infrastructure Funding

OPPOSE—Same as above
