Keeping Up With HB08-1001

It has been incredibly exciting to observe the legislative process for HB1001, the Bill that may bring north of $25M to the Colorado life science ecosystem over the next five years. The Bill has marched through the House and has been working its way through the Senate passing unamended in the Appropriations committee last Friday. Next stop…on to the Senate Committee of the Whole. Fingers crossed!!!

Here is a snapshot of HB1001’s journey to date:

01/09 Introduced In House Assigned to Finance + Appropriations
