Policy Profile
-Submitted by Hanni Raley, Assistant Executive Director-

The 71 st Regular Session of the Colorado General Assembly has been productive via the passage of bills that help all Coloradans. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have benefited from some of the discussions. We’ve compiled a list of legislation, signed by the Governor, that we think you might be interested in.
