This week we are sharing key updates and resources around legislative activity, the Census, and COVID-19.
As we mentioned in last week’s update, the Capitol building is closed to the public until further notice. As such, legislative session is in recess and tentatively scheduled to resume on March 30th, but it remains likely that date will be pushed back.
However, there are a few key legislative updates to be aware of:
- The Joint Budget Committee met this week to discuss the upcoming economic forecast, particularly as it relates to the economic impact of COVID-19. Although there is still a lot more information needed, the forecast was bleak and projected significant reductions from previous forecasts. Read more here.
- SB20-014 Excused Absences In Public Schools For Behavioral Health went to the Governor’s desk for signing.
It is critical that all Coloradans are counted in the 2020 Census to ensure full access to funding and representation.
