Colorado legislators just passed SB23-295, creating a task force to begin addressing drought and climate change on the Colorado River. Say thanks!
Colorado legislators just passed Senate Bill 23-295, creating a task force that will bring together stakeholders with a range of perspectives to make recommendations to address drought and climate change on the Colorado River. This collaborative approach is essential to the well-being of the state and is an important step towards developing urgently needed programs and legislation to protect the Colorado River.
Sponsored by Senator Dylan Roberts, Senator Perry Will, Speaker of the House Julie McCluskie, Representative Marc Catlin, and many additional co-sponsors, SB23-295 responds to growing public concern over the looming water crisis, but the work is just beginning.
Stakeholders and task force members will need to work collaboratively in the coming months to produce meaningful recommendations to secure Colorado’s water future.
Reach out to legislators to thank them for sponsoring SB23-295 (Colorado River Drought Task Force) and let them know you support future actions to protect the Colorado River.
