We have been and continue to monitor this year's legislation under consideration in Colorado, and are asking you for your input.
Your feedback is very important for CABA to better represent the interests of you and your business, as well as those of business and general aviation in Colorado. Your responses will enable us to serve your needs by either supporting or opposing these bills.
Some are directly aviation-related while others have impacts on the general business community in the state. Please take a few moments to read and understand what they will do and their consequences.
* VERY IMPORTANT* We will need your feedback on these bills by Thursday Feb 6.
You MUST be a CABA member and log in In order to access the poll. If you don't have your password, there is a Forgot Password link on the login page that will enable you to reset it.
We understand and apologize that this doesn't allow much time for consideration, but it is simply due to the nature of how the legislative process works: Bills are introduced in the House or Senate, assigned to and debated in committee, and then are either approved to move to the full body for debate and votes, or are killed in committee. Thus the situation changes almost daily and we must be ready to respond as rapidly as possible in our discussions and testimony at the Capitol.
This poll will be revised every two weeks, as various bills advance or are eliminated. Here are the bills for consideration in this poll (Bill Titles are links to the full text):
HB20-1143: Environmental Justice And Projects Increase Environmental Fines
