(April 19) – Speaker Crisanta Duran reacted today to Senate amendments to HB18-1256, a bill to continue the Colorado Civil Rights Commission and Civil Rights Division.
Here is her statement:
“Our goal is to ensure that Coloradans have the right to work and live in Colorado without fear of discrimination and harassment in their jobs and their homes, and a strong and independent CCRD is critical to achieving that goal.
“I have serious concerns about some of the amendments the Senate Republicans have added that would make it harder to achieve justice. The continued existence of this agency is too important to play politics with it. I hope we can find common ground and pass a bill reauthorizing the CCRD this year.”
