The first three weeks of the legislative session are coming to a close, and we have already seen bill proposals that have the potential to greatly impact the wellbeing of young people across the state.

Colorado Youth Matter has taken public supportive positions on bills that have a direct effect on the health of youth. One such bill that Colorado Youth Matter is supporting is HB-1002, the Parental Involvement Bill.

The Colorado legislative session began yesterday, which means there are 119 days of bill proposals and political maneuvering ahead of us. With a Republican Senate and Democratic House, and a notable lack of funding, it’s going to be a tough year to get anything passed. Colorado Youth Matter will be keeping track of any bills that relate to our work in the field of youth sexual health, and we invite you to tune in to our bi-weekly blog, What’s the Hap at the Cap?, to keep up-to-date on these important issues.
