To celebrate our hard work, we're hosting an Advocacy Afterhours party on May 31st at 5:30 pm at Stoney’s Bar and Grill at 1111 Lincoln Street in Denver! Appetizers are on us. We'd love if you could join us. Please RSVP here, and feel free to bring a friend, just be sure they RSVP too!
Here's what we're celebrating:
- Successfully Passed:
- SB18-01, transportation infrastructure funding, including 15% for multimodal (active) transportation
- SB18-13, to expand eligibility for children who need free lunch from fifth grade to eighth grade
- Successfully Defeated:
- SB18-214, which would have created a work requirement and lifetime cap on Medicaid
- SB18-201, which would have exempted religious institutions from state child care regulations
- SB18-139, which would have strengthened fiscal penalties for cities that regulate tobacco sales
- Still working on:
- SB18-179. We are still contacting the Governor urging him to veto this bill to protect critical health care funding instead of supporting tobacco retailers. You can send him a quick email here.
