This week in the Legislature, Jan. 18, 2011

For most of the first full week of a legislative session, committees get briefings from various state departments and agencies, and this year is no exception. A few bills that committees will consider this week include:

Today: The House Economic & Business Development Committee will hear HB1023, which would continue a home foreclosure deferment program.

That same committee will hear HB1006, introduced by Rep. Don Coram, R-Montrose, which would add a local representative to regional tourism authority boards that include more than one county.

Wednesday: Sen. Gail Schwartz, D-Snowmass Village, will present her SB28 to the Senate Judiciary Committee to take a judgeship away from Jefferson County courts and add a fifth judgeship to the 7th Judicial District, which includes Montrose and Delta counties.

Thursday: The House Business and Economic Development Committee is to hear HB1007 by Rep. Laura Bradford, R-Collbran, to allow classified workers at Mesa State College to opt out of the state personnel system.

Next week: The Senate Judiciary Committee will consider a measure that would add homeless people to the state’s at-risk-crime provisions, putting them in the same category as certain juveniles and the elderly when it comes to sentencing in crimes committed against them.

Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee will look at a bill to change some provisions of last year’s controversial medical marijuana law.

All floor action and committees can be watched or heard on the Legislature’s website, http://www.leg.state.co.us.
