General Assembly Reconvenes
Andrea Wilkins, Legislative Liaison
The Colorado General Assembly reconvened the 2021 legislative session on Tuesday February 16, following a month-long temporary adjournment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is unclear exactly when policymakers will conclude business, though if the General Assembly meets for the full 120-day session, some die will fall on June 12.
Since the January 15 adjournment, a lot of work has been underway with the Joint Budget Committee receiving budget briefings from the various state departments and engaging in figure-setting discussions, while the General Assembly as a whole has continued developing legislation and engaging in stakeholder meetings and discussions. Policymakers introduced well over 200 bills upon reconvening this week.
