COGOP Statement On The End Of Colorado Legislative Session

Greenwood Village, Colorado – Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown issued the below statement following the conclusion of the 2022 Colorado Legislative session:

“With the end of the Colorado legislative session, it’s more clear than ever which party works for the people. Republicans stood up for working families until midnight on the 120th day of session, stopping dozens of terrible bills proposed by the Democrats. The party in charge severely mismanaged their calendar, passing a haphazard half-fix on the fentanyl crisis only at the last minute – after ignoring the recommendations of police, district attorneys, and victims.

“Democrats delayed the gas tax, but refused to repeal it. They temporarily stunted property taxes, but refused to listen to Republicans who urged better solutions for families and seniors. The Democrats’ session-long refusal to listen to working people will cost them the election in November. Republicans will be ready to deliver on our Commitment to Colorado. Our legislators will make Colorado affordable again, prioritize public safety, and expand educational options for all parents and all kids. I want to thank the Republican legislators – in both the House and the Senate – for their hard work this session on behalf of our state.”
