Colorado Issues

Friday, May 3rd was the final day of the 2019 legislative session. The Democrats set out with an ambitious agenda and accomplished for Coloradans over the 120 days of the session. It’s impossible to adequately summarize the session’s accomplishments, but here are a few of the greatest hits. Over 400 bills passed this year and 95% of them had bi-partisan support.

YOU DID THIS BY ELECTING STATE REPRESENTATIVE WHO ACTUALLY REPRESENT ALL THE PEOPLE!!!

Energy & Climate

Civil & Human Rights

Healthcare

  • We enacted a reinsurance bill which will assist health insurers in paying high-cost insurance claims. By reducing system-wide costs and paying for a portion of high-cost claims, we can reduce premiums for all Coloradans.
  • We’ve increased transparency regarding medical billing to protect consumers from things like surprise bills from out of network providers.
  • We increased access to programs and services for those in need of treatment for opioid and substance use disorders.
  • We expanded dental services to pregnant women covered under the children’s basic health plan.
  • We’ve authorized the state to investigate a public health care option for all Coloradans.
  • We’ve authorized a pilot program for cooperative medical insurance programs in rural areas.
  • We created the Office of Saving People Money on Healthcare.
  • We’ve authorized the state to import prescription drugs from Canada, which will increase cost savings for Colorado consumers.
