New Bills Drop as Session Begins


With the official start of the state legislative session on Wednesday, lawmakers released a slew of bills for consideration. In all a total of 98 bills were dropped, with many more expected over the course of the next couple of weeks.

Republicans issues measures that focused on scaling back health care requirements in an effort to block national health care, returning tax exemptions to industries such as agriculture, and subsidizing private tuition.

Democrats focused on bills that include allowing illegal immigrants to receive in-state tuition and establishing civil unions as well as reforming the Colorado medical marijuana law.

A deadline to finalize the text of bills and sign co-sponsors is set for Tuesday of next week which will most certainly bring another pile of bills across the Speaker’s desk.
