Shining A Light On Energy Policy

Pun intended...Energy policy is a burning issue today. Our planet is warming, new technologies allow oil and gas to be retrieved at great depths, and renewable energy sources are cheaper and more widely used. Colorado's policies are constantly evolving.

The Energy Policy Every Member Material highlights the policies of United States, Colorado, Jefferson County and the European Union as they stand today. And it addresses several of today's hot topics; such as the changing energy market, the electric grid, and carbon pricing mechanisms to encourage the use of renewables. It asks you to think about how we can get to a more sustainable energy future.

The aim of the materials is to make what can be a complicated and arcane topic more understandable. Beyond the EMM, please find an Appendix containing the League's full position on Energy, An Overview of the Evolution of Electric Power in US & Colorado and Energy Sources.

CO Legislative Wrap-Up

What Happened and How Will It Impact You
The League's dedicated team (Legislative Action Committee along with our staff lobbyist, Christine Watson) has followed over 90 bills through the Colorado General Assembly this year. Their testimony and influence helped to shape our state laws. Come to this illuminating unit meeting to catch up on all the action. We covered Voting Rights, Gun Control, Health Care, Higher Education, Children's issues, Fiscal Opportunity, Income Assistance, and Reproductive Choice.
Learn how the new laws will affect your life. No documents will be sent to accompany this meeting, as the LWVCO Legislative Letter will serve as the reference material.
