Here is an update regarding SB 52 from Amie Mayhew, Executive Director of the Colorado Association of Home Builders:

Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard the proponents testimony on SB-52.  Because the Senate was due back on the floor by 5:00 they were not able to hear all of the opponents or to deliberate.  

SB-52 has been scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, April 17th at 1:30 p.m. In room 356 – the Committee will hear from the rest of the opponents and will then vote on the bill.  If you can’t join us at the Capitol, you can listen to the hearing online by clicking here.  When you arrive on this page after 1:30 p.m. – you’ll need to click on “Listen to Event.”  

A huge thank you to all of the witnesses who testified in favor of SB-52 for us yesterday!
