Colorado Legislature Adjourns First Regular Session
The first regular session of the 71st Colorado General Assembly adjourned Wednesday, May 10.
Prior to adjournment, lawmakers passed an omnibus spending bill to save Colorado hospitals millions of dollars and reduce Medicaid spending while increasing funding for highway projects and offering a personal property tax credit to businesses. Due to partisan disagreement, however, legislators failed to reauthorize the Colorado Energy Office, effectively dismantling the agency July 1.
The second regular session will convene on January 10, 2018.
