The 2022 session of the Colorado legislature is past the ceremonial beginnings, and getting to work on the hundreds of bills that have been introduced so far.

This year, we’re helping our members keep track of important legislation making its way through the process with our 2022 Colorado Bill Tracker. We’ll be updating this list throughout the legislative session as bills are scheduled for debate:

When a bill’s status changes, we’ll keep this page updated–and when it’s your turn to participate in the process, whether by testifying for or against legislation or contacting your lawmakers, we’ll provide links on this page to the information you’ll need to take action.

Although most of the media’s attention is focused on dysfunction in Washington, at the state capitol in Denver our progressive majority legislators are focused on delivering on promises to make life better, fairer, and more affordable for everyone.

Do you know of a bill we should be tracking through the Colorado legislature in 2022? Drop us a line at info@progressnowcolorado.org with the bill number and links to information you’d like included.

Here are a few more ways you can make a difference for the week of January 31st, 2021:
