2018 Legislative Scorecard
Colorado’s legislative session is 120 days and a great deal happens in these mere four months that affect many Coloradans. For example, in the 2018 session, transportation and education saw unprecedented gains in funding. The legislature infused $645 million into multi-modal transportation and infrastructure and increased per pupil funding by $469 per student.
Civil liberties legislation rarely gets much attention. The one exception this year was the reauthorization of the Colorado Civil Rights Division, which protects all Coloradans from discrimination in employment, housing, and public spaces.
