(Feb. 10) – The House unanimously passed a bipartisan flood recovery bill this morning sponsored by Rep. Mike Foote (D-Lafayette) and Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso (R-Loveland). The bill will allow a county government to use general fund money to repair its bridges and roads if the governor has declared a disaster emergency within that county. “This will allow local county governments to rebuild damaged roads and bridges faster and ensures that counties will be able to recover from future natural disasters,” Rep. Foote, a member of the Flood Disaster Study Committee, said. “I was honored to work on this bipartisan committee to find solutions and help Coloradans recover from the floods.” SB14-007 now heads to the governor’s desk.
