Headlines for Hope
The Colorado Legislature returned to the Capitol to resume business on Tuesday, May 26, in this unprecedented legislative session. Author, active citizen and mother, Heather Lahdenpera explains, “According to Joint Rule 44, only “mission critical bills” are to move forward. In addition, Colorado faces a $3.3 billion shortfall due to COVID-19. The state will have 25% less money than it had to work with last year. This means that any bill with a fiscal note should be tabled.” Despite these critical guidelines and issues, Representative Kyle Mullica has been out doing PR for his vaccination bill, SB 163. Heather Lahdenpera point out that SB 163 is NOT mission critical and has a fiscal note which the state cannot afford.
