With about 2 weeks left in session.....

With about 2 weeks left in session, we have reached the point that it is near impossible to keep track of the schedule. If you have been watching a bill that is up for 2nd or 3rd hearing on the floor, don't wait, email/call your Senators and Reps now! Also know that just because they are scheduled to be heard on the floor one day, doesn't mean they will be as they are laying over bills daily. If you want to know about a specific bill, your best bet is to reach out to the office of the sponsor.

Additionally, there is a backlog waiting for Appropriations. Due to TABOR, our legislators are incredibly limited on how much they can spend. This session, they have passed a lot of great bills, but together they go far over the budgeted amount. If there is an issue or a bill that you are passionate about being funded, contact your Representative and Senator. You can also reach out to the Appropriations committee it is pending in and members of the Joint Budget committee.

A few new bills this week:

SCHOOL IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

HB19-1212

INCENTIVES DEVELOPERS FACILITATE AFFORDABLE HOUSING

HB19-1319

EXPAND SUPPLY AFFORDABLE HOUSING

HB19-1322

And the schedule. Please note, bills up for 2nd or 3rd hearing are not noted on the schedule due to the uncertainty of when they will actually be heard. Check the spreadsheet or the Colorado Leg website for the status of specific bills you are interested in, and be sure to reach out sooner rather than later!
