Things are happening...our bill is now before the Colorado House Veterans Committee

Fix HB6-1251 to match the constitution's Article X Section 3.5
In his effort to align the constitution with legislation, Colorado's state senator for Fort Collins has a "late bill" now being worked on in Denver. It was a miracle that, so late in the Legislature's crowded final thirty days, this issue still got attention from leaders in both parties and both chambers.

Senator John Kefalas crafted the bill and with bipartisan support now has it before the House Veterans Affairs Committee, and in the Senate awaiting committee assignment.
