2022 Legislation Monitoring

Citizens Project monitors bills every year at the Colorado State Legislature, and we report back to our community about bills we support and oppose, based on their alignment with our values of equity, inclusion, and justice.

Below are the bills Citizens Project has taken a position on for 2022.

Citizens Project puts out calls to action for certain bills, and we publish a Legislator Report Card at the end of every Legislative Session, outlining how El Paso County Legislators voted on the bills we took positions on.
