Colorado’s 72nd General Assembly has been no stranger to addressing pertinent, and often sensitive, issues affecting Colorado’s estimated half-million and growing immigrant population. In the last three months, the Colorado legislature passed seven pro-immigrant bills and sent them to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. Of those seven, Colorado Governor Jared Polis has signed four into law, to date:
Remaining on the Governor’s desk are: SB19-030, concerning the withdrawal of improperly entered guilty pleas; SB19-139, concerning the expansion of the number of DMV offices handling Colorado’s “special” driver’s licenses for undocumented persons from 3 to 10 offices; and SB19-230, concerning the administrative composition and operations of the Colorado refugee services program.
