Senator Chris Hansen is expected to introduce a property tax relief bill to the Colorado legislature in 2 days. It is a major piece of legislation that intends to discuss new property tax assessments.The General Assembly of Colorado is expected to adjourn on May 8, but there are still hundreds of bills needed to be addressed. A major piece of legislation that is expected to be released is the bill that is intended to discuss new property tax assessments. In some cases, these assessments show increases of 30% to 50%.
According to Boyd, Senator Chris Hansen is also expected to introduce and sponsor a property tax relief bill on May 1. This schedule will give the lawmakers a week to get the bill passed which is a huge amount of time in general. However, the session this year reportedly includes a lot of delays.
Bills Other Than the Property Tax Relief Bill
Another article from Boyd states that on April 28, the House consumed five hours on a bill that made indecent exposures involving a child a felony crime. To date, if the act is done in person, it is still considered a misdemeanor. It is only considered a felony if it is done online.
Reports say this bill is one of the nearly 80 bills about criminal justice. A bill to make car theft a felony crime and a bill that prevents criminal charges, except murder, against children below 12 is still hanging.
Overall, there are around 300 bills that are still needed to be addressed. This includes the bill introduced by Colorado Governor Jared Polis to increase affordable housing. The Senate had already abolished the provisions and made the bill basically a study. However, this move may be changed in the House.
