Good News for the Climate and Coloradans in the Legislature This Week

CC4CA helped pass Representative Hansen’s Colorado Energy Impact Assistant Act out of committee in the State House earlier in the week. This bill provides a voluntary tool for utilities that want to retire coal plants early, protecting ratepayers and shareholders and also providing assistance to the communities most impacted by the loss of coal-related jobs. And yesterday CC4CA helped defeat a bill in the State Senate that would have hamstrung Colorado‚Äôs ability to improve vehicle emissions standards and make electric vehicles more accessible to everyone in the state.
