(April 27) – House Speaker Crisanta Duran, D-Denver and Rep. Leslie Herod, D-Denver issued the following statement regarding the Colorado Civil Rights Division and Commission:

“We have always advocated for a clean reauthorization of the Commission because it is fulfilling its purpose – to ensure that Coloradans’ rights are protected regardless of where they’re from, whom they love or the family they were born into. The changes added in the Senate go too far, reworking the commission dramatically. We cannot support the current changes, and hope that we can find common ground and pass a bill reauthorizing the Civil Rights Division and Commission before the end of session. Coloradans are watching.”
