SB 100: Repeal the Death Penalty
The Colorado legislature has officially passed the bill to repeal the death penalty in Colorado. It is now headed to the Governor’s desk to officially become the law of the land. A ton of work from advocates, victims, and legislators has gone into bringing this historic bill across the finish line!
SB 189: Local Control of Pesticides

HB 1336: Genocide Prevention This is a bipartisan bill that I’m sponsoring which will require that Holocaust and genocide studies be taught in public schools in Colorado, so that the voices of the survivors of these horrific tragedies are never forgotten and to prevent the societal factors that can lead to these atrocious acts. It will be heard in the House Education committee on March 12.
The air quality bill I have been working on is scheduled for introduction NEXT week! This legislation will be the next step in the long fight to ensure all Coloradans are able to breathe clean air. This bill is likely to be a big fight, so please stay tuned on how you can help me get it done!
