LEGISLATION

Below you will find the bills and resolutions I am working on and have introduced for the 2018 Legislative session.  As I walked the amazing neighborhoods of House District 30 I talked to you about the issues that affect all of us in HD30 and across Colorado.  They included Access to Mental Health, Economic Development, Education, and Veteran’s issues.  If you’d like to learn more about the priorities I’m focused on click:

SB18-013 | Expand Child Nutrition School Lunch Protection Act

Current law creates an annual appropriation to provide lunches at no charge to children in state-subsidized early childhood education programs administered by public schools or in kindergarten through fifth grade who would otherwise have to pay for a reduced-price lunch.

The bill extends the grade of eligibility to eighth grade in schools that elect to participate in the expanded program.

The bill authorizes an annual appropriation, including a cap on the amount of the annual appropriation, to cover the expanded grades of eligible children.
