(May 31) – Speaker KC Becker appointed the chairs, vice chairs and other Democratic members of the 2019 interim committees. Earlier this month, House and Senate Leadership announced the formation of a new interim committee focused on studying school safety in Colorado.

“We made historic investments in K-12 and higher-ed and took action on climate, health care and economic security. House Democrats have more work to do this interim to prepare for the next legislative session in order to solve problems for hardworking Coloradans, and Coloradans can be confident in the members appointed to these committees who will drive that work forward,” said Speaker Becker.
