UPDATE:

This has been a busy legislative session and it is coming to a close on May 3, which is the date scheduled for our next meeting. Sol is unlikely to be able to join us due to the usual frenzy of activity on the final day of the session and we would be better served by waiting a week, to May 10, so we can get a legislative wrap up from Sol and revisit next steps regarding water legislation for the 2019 session.

Just a partial recap on this year’s session – our committee has been great and engaged. This session we:

  • Set APA CO Legislative Agenda

  • Followed more than 50 bills

  • Took positions to support wildfire grant legislation, housing legislation, climate legislation, and more

  • We provided a statement of support for HB19-1292 (reauthorize funding for state resiliency office) and Denise Balkas was prepared to testify in support (passed House; on 3rd reading in the Senate)

  • Worked toward water legislation this year; laid the ground work for next session; and will take this effort into the summer

Thanks so much for all of your work. Please look for more information regarding our meeting on May 10; noon to 1:00 PM.
