IT WAS UNANIMOUS!
Yesterday after the two hour wait for a previous bill to be defeated, the Colorado House Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs approved House bill 16 – 1444. And the vote was all in favor of the proposed legislation.
Our thanks are due to Committee Chair Sue Ryden who not only sponsored the legislation but testified on its behalf as did Representative Terri Carver (Colonel, USAF, Ret.) And also to the outstanding leg work done by the United Veterans Committee of Colorado, Senator John Kefalas, and other leaders behind this issue.
Next up? The House Appropriations Committee, to address the modest cost of bringing the laws of Colorado into alignment with our state's Constitution Article 10, Section 3.5.
