“This is a great bill that extends the sunset for the oversight of local meat processors across the state. This bill makes sure that CDA can ensure that our local meat supply is safe to eat by continuing to regulate the local custom meat processing industry. This bill supports small businesses, and helps to maintain industry standards across our rural communities. Guaranteeing that all meat processors and purveyors are held to the same high standards. The Ag committee, in this unanimous vote, showed that Colorado lawmakers understand how important this industry is and we are taking steps to ensure CDA continues their vital role in regulating and promoting local meat processing across this great state.”

HB23-1220 creates a study which will assist in the Republican River Water Conservation District and the state of Colorado as they navigate informed decision-making, encourage responsible interstate water management, and supports interstate compact compliance. The long term goal is to guarantee economic vitality in Eastern Colorado and with our neighbors in Nebraska and Kansas for decades to come and this economic study will frame the conversation as we move forward.”
