2020 Legislative Session
Colorado's 2020 legislative session began on January 8th and was scheduled to adjourn on May 6th. Pursuant to HJR20-1007, the Second Regular Session of the 72nd General Assembly was temporarily adjourned. On May 26th, the Colorado General Assembly gaveled in for what has already been and will continue to be the most challenging session in recent memory. While they technically still have 53 days, we’ve been told they will only stay in session for three weeks. We will continue to issue updates focused on legislation and issues specific to the affordable housing community.
