2020 Lege session

DENVER — Now that the Colorado Senate has approved Senate Bill 100 to do away with the death penalty, the measure heads to the Colorado House for more debate. It has not yet been scheduled for its first committee hearing in that chamber.

■ Today: The Senate Judiciary Committee is to hear SB61, a measure that would impose a new traffic offense for not yielding to bicycles that are properly in designated bicycle lanes.

■ Tuesday: The House Judiciary Committee is to debate a bill by Rep. Matt Soper, R-Delta, that would make it a felony for offenses committed on a deceased human body.

■ Wednesday: The Senate Judiciary Committee is to discuss SB102, a bipartisan measure that would require certain health care providers to disclose to patients if they have been convicted of or had final disciplinary action of a sex offense.

■ Thursday: The House Finance Committee is to consider HB1003, a measure that modifies the Rural Jump Start Tax Credit Program.

■ Next week: Rep. Janice Rich, R-Grand Junction, will present her bill to the House Transportation and Local Government Committee that would exempt housing authorities from having to pay water tap fees on new construction.

All floor action and committees can be watched or heard on the Colorado Legislature’s website at lege.colorado.gov. Check that website to see which measures are available for remote testimony, and how to register to speak.
