2021 Legislative Agenda
My name is Bill Skewes and I am the contract lobbyist for the Association. As part of the Association’s new website, I will be posting updates about what is going on at the state capital during the legislative session. You will be able to find my updates here on the legislative page. The session will officially start on Wednesday, January 13th, however, they don’t plan to be in Denver for more than a day or two to swear in new members and take care of some organizational requirements. Then due to the ongoing pandemic, the legislature plans to adjourn until on or about February 16th. During “normal” times they would not be able to do this, but last year the Colorado Supreme Court determined that the 120-day limit on regular legislative sessions in the Colorado constitution does not need to run concurrently during a state of emergency. As a result, once they resume the session – hopefully sometime in February – they will have the ability to continue for another 118 or 119 days.
As for what to expect this session, one of the Association’s top concerns is to ensure the $225 million general fund transfer to PERA required by SB 18-200 takes place. The legislature skipped the transfer this year to help balance the state budget and the result is anticipated to be about a $900 million impact on PERA long term. Thankfully, Governor Polis included the transfer in his budget request, and we will continue to work with the JBC to ensure it is included in the final budget. Another issue we will be closely watching is potential changes to SB 20-217, the law enforcement reform bill from last session. Although these are the two biggest issues we anticipate seeing this session, there will be many others concerning such issues as driver license revocations and jail populations. In order to ensure your interests are protected I review every bill that is introduced.
A Memorial to our fallen heroes...
The Colorado Law Enforcement Memorial is located in a small grove of trees at the State Patrol Academy, located at 15055 South Golden Road, Golden, CO, 80401. The memorial was erected in 1979 as a tribute to Colorado’s fallen peace officers.
Each May, a ceremony is held to honor the officers listed on the memorial and to add any new names from the previous calendar year.
