The committee reviewed eight bills – House Bills: 1009, 1050, 1052, 1078 and Senate Bills: 022, 030, 033, 049.

The committee confirmed its support for HB 20-1009 and SB 20-022 as these bills had been considered before the bills were introduced (and note that Senior Lobby is the primary proponent of SB 20-022). The other bills were placed on the agenda for consideration of a position the following Monday, as per standard committee practice.

The committee also received a presentation from Aubrey Hasvold of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless regarding a bill they plan to introduce that would prohibit landlords declining to accept certain forms of payment for rent, such as vouchers, government assistance payments, pensions or child support.

Next meeting is Monday, January 20, 2020. It will be at the Disability Law Colorado Offices – Main Conference Room located at 455 Sherman St, Denver, CO 80203. You can attend in person or call in using Zoom – Get details – CLICK HERE
