This Week in the Legislature, April 28, 2014
The Colorado Legislature is entering its final full week, but still has hundreds of bills to rule on. This is the time during a legislative session when bills fly hither and yonder, many dying along the way.
■ Today: The House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee will hear SB181, the bill that would outlaw the use of red-light cameras.
■ Tuesday: The House Judiciary Committee will debate SB2, a measure to put the private the Safe2Tell program under the auspices of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.
The program gives schoolchildren a place to report potential threatening problems in schools and report them anonymously.
■ Wednesday: The House Local Government Committee will hear SB184, sponsored by Rep. Don Coram, R-Montrose, to allow for more hemp to be grown in Colorado.
■ Thursday: The Senate Health and Human Services Committee will consider several marijuana-related measures, including one, HB1361, partially sponsored by Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, to place restrictions on how much marijuana concentrate can be in edibles.
■ Next week: The 2014 session has three days left. It ends May 7.
