What you can do to fight for progress this week (March 27)

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ProgressNow Colorado

Americans take strong consumer protection laws for granted while they protect the public from fraud, defective goods, and bad service. Much like the work week before unions fought for the weekend, life without consumer protection laws would be bad for everyone. Except ripoff artists.

Consumer fraud is a huge problem in Colorado. Colorado ranks 12th per capita for consumer fraud complaints according to the Federal Trade Commission, and Colorado’s consumer protection laws are actually well behind most of the country. In Colorado, it’s not enough to prove that you were ripped off–consumers actually have to prove businesses “knowingly and recklessly” violated the law in a way that caused “significant public impact.”

It’s time to update Colorado’s consumer protection laws to empower consumers over fraudsters. Click here to urge your lawmakers to support House Bill 23-1192 to hold bad actors accountable and ensure Colorado consumers enjoy the same protections as most Americans.

Thanks very much to everyone who contacted your lawmakers last week on behalf of gig workers we all depend on. Senate Bill 23-098, Gig Worker Transparency, will give rideshare and other gig workers the basic information they need to plan their work week and provide the best income for their families. This bill also creates a fair process to resolve deactivations of drivers who in many cases today have no recourse to challenge a discriminatory decision.

If you haven’t already, contact your State Senator now and ask them to SUPPORT transparency and fairness for gig economy workers.

For the latest status on all the bills ProgressNow Colorado is working to pass this year, check the PNC Bill Tracker.

Here are a few more ways to fight for progress for the week of March 27, 2023:
