SB 200 Final Version

Updated: 5/9/2018 11:11 pm — This post will be updated with additional information in the coming days when we have time to thoroughly review the conference committee version of the bill.

Below is what the Colorado General Assembly passed late Wednesday night with less than an hour left in the session.

We will link to the actual bill text when it is available.

Conference Committee Voted 5-1 (Senator Kagan (D-Cherry Hills Village) opposed)

House Voted 43-29-2 to re-adopt amended SB 200 (see how legislators voted here)

Senate Voted 24-11-0 to re-adopt amended SB200 (see how legislators voted here, awaiting the link)

Now, the bill will go to the Governor’s desk – he can sign the bill, veto the bill, or allow it to become law without his signature.
