4.7.19 Legislative Update

Updated: Apr 14, 2019

In this weeks legislative update, I'm excited to say that a few of the bills we've been following closely this year passed and are now awaiting our Governor's signature. This includes Prohibiting Conversion Therapy for Minors, Extreme Risk Protection Orders, Protecting Public Welfare Oil and Gas Regulations, and Open Internet Protections in Colorado. Also this session, they have passed legislation that adds to the legal definition of unlawful sexual contact, added autism to the list for accessing medical marijuana, and guaranteed our electoral college votes to the presidential candidate that wins the popular vote (once more states also sign on). This is what progress looks like! Our votes in November made a difference and these pieces of legislation will change lives.

We can't rest yet though! There's about a month left in Colorado's legislative session and there's some important bills still making their way through. Please see below for this weeks schedule.

Important to note that the following bills were scheduled in committee this week and the dates have changed. The calendar is a bit hectic at the Capitol right now, if you are going to testify on a bill, double check that it's still scheduled before you go.
