|Partners in conservation,
I want to thank each of you for your involvement in and support of the Hunting, Fishing, and Parks for Future Generations Act (Senate Bill 143, https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb18-143). Your outreach efforts made a significant impact. The Senate Finance Committee unanimously passed the bill, 5-0, on Tuesday, Feb.13. It will be heard next in Senate Appropriations.
We ask that you continue to contact legislators, most importantly the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, to voice your support for the Future Generations Act before the bill is up for a vote. The bill has not yet been scheduled, but it could be heard early next week. The Appropriations Committee does not allow testimony during the committee hearing, so your outreach prior to the vote is critical.
A list of the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee follows:
Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg
Sen. Leroy Garcia
Sen. Kent Lambert
Sen. Bob Gardner
Sen. Kevin Lundberg
Sen. Dominick Moreno
Sen. Andy Kerr
If the Appropriations Committee approves Senate Bill 143, it will then be heard on the Senate floor. For that reason, we also request that you contact your individual senators here (http://leg.colorado.gov/find-my- legislator) and ask them to support CPW’s Future Generations Act (Senate Bill 143).
A fact sheet on Senate Bill 143 can be found on the CPW website (http://cpw.state.co.us/Future-Generations-Act). You will also find several other valuable resources on the site.
Thank you for your continued support of our most valuable resources. The only way this bill will pass is with your help. Please call your legislators to let them know you support CPW’s Future Generations Act (Senate Bill 143) and ask for their support to ensure future generations have the opportunity to experience Colorado’s amazing natural resources and recreational opportunities.
