Colorado Kicks Off Legislative Session
As this year’s legislature begins, we wanted to update you all about a few bills that have been introduced in either the House or Senate, that CADA will be tracking and participating in hearings regarding these issues. There is no guarantee that any or all will pass, but as your representatives in the State house, we are committed to ensuring the most favorable environment possible for dealers and drivers throughout Colorado.
You can find more on these bills and others in the "Legislation" section of the website. If you have specific feedback you would like to provide to CADA, please contact Matthew Groves at email@example.com or (303) 282-1449.
