Gov. Polis was in Colorado Springs to sign a bipartisan bill, SB22-146 led by Rep. Snyder, Rep. Marc Catlin House District 58, Sen. Rachel Zenzinger of Arvada and Sen. Hisey of Senate District 2 to save people money on housing.
The Governor then signed the bipartisan HB22-1230 Employment Support And Job Retention Services sponsored by Rep. Exum Sr., Rep. Monica Duran of Wheat Ridge, Sen. Fields and Sen. Kevin Priola of Brighton.
One notable law, to Temporarily Reduce Road User Charges, addresses gas prices. Originally, the state was set to raise gas prices by two cents a gallon by July. Under the new law, this rise will be pushed back to July on 2023. Within the language of the bill itself, government officials cite the recent rise in prices over the past few months as the reasoning for this delay.
The Driver License Fee Reduction law will also prevent a rise in fees. This law will maintain current drivers license fees and prevent them from rising, as they were set to do within the next two years.
Polis also signed several other bills into law. Here is the list:
SB22-238 2023 And 2024 Property Tax
HB22-1416 Property Tax Administrative Procedures
HB22-1351 Temporarily Reduce Road User Charges
