As we postulated last week, in these last 5 weeks of the session we should expect some really bad bills. The first one listed below is a prime example.
HB23-1257 Mobile Home Park Water Quality
There is so much wrong with this bill!!!
One example—if a mobile home park owner fails to comply with the Dept. of Health, the State will confiscate the property, turn it over to the County to be maintained as ‘affordable housing’ for no less than 100 years.
HB23-1272 Tax Policy That Advances Decarbonization
We always like tax credits. We don’t always like targeted tax credits, especially when based on stupidity.
HB23-1279 Allow Retail Marijuana Online Sales
Well at least some won’t be high going to and from the store.
SB23-250 Transfer From Severance Tax Operations Cash Fund
This would transfer 10 million dollars from the ‘fund’ to Colorado Mesa and Western Colorado universities for energy-related projects. The severance tax was supposed to go directly to jurisdictions impacted by energy exploration, etc.
SB23-254 Search Warrant Procedures
Looks like this would increase the danger already inherent in serving search warrants.
SB23-261 Direct Care Workforce Stabilization Board
Just when we thought there was nothing left for the State government to screw up.
And there are these three bills dealing with ‘grey wolf reintroduction’. You can read these as well as all others by following this link.
