DENVER (KKTV) - Colorado Gov. Jared Polis and Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera are working together along with leadership from the General Assembly, saying their goals include helping Coloradans save money, improve community safety, and generate greater success for people.

This year’s legislative session in Colorado started on Wednesday.

“We are going bigger and bolder with the urgency of saving people money, ensuring Colorado remains affordable, making historic investments in improving our schools and reducing crime. This is how we continue moving Colorado forward, together,” Polis says.

Looking forward into the future everyone deserves to thrive and succeed, live in safe communities, and have access to better education opportunities.

“Every Colorado family deserves to feel safe and secure in their home and their community,” added Senate President Leroy Garcia.

Colorado is moving forward with plans and priorities for 2022. According to a release from the governor’s office, the following are priorities:

- Saving people money

- Expanding access to healthcare and reducing costs

- Making Colorado more affordable by reducing childcare and housing costs
