Colorado Gov. Jared Polis Plans to Call a Special Session on COVID Relief
The Colorado General Assembly is preparing for a special session to provide more relief to those impacted by COVID-19.
Gov. Jared Polis wants lawmakers to take immediate action on elements of his $1.3 billion stimulus package. This would include relief for restaurant owners and other small businesses.
The special session is expected after the Thanksgiving holiday, before lawmakers return on January 13 for their next regular session. It will take at least three days to approve the legislation.
