Capitol Updates: The 2023 legislative session adjourns sine die

The 2023 legislative session has officially wrapped! The Colorado General Assembly has completed 120 days of work, and the Children’s Campaign is so proud of the progress made with our amazing partners, advocates, and policymakers. Over the last four months, we successfully passed legislation to expand health insurance and reproductive health care access; invest more in child care providers; increase resources for our public school students; and ensure more families have access to the judicial system when facing eviction. Almost all of the priorities we worked on this year passed with bipartisan support. That is a lot of progress for Colorado kids and families! 

In total, 680 bills, resolutions, and memorials were introduced this legislative session. When the session concluded on May 8, 550 of those bills had passed and 130 had failed. Gov. Polis has already signed about 200 passed bills into law. He has until June 7 to sign or veto the rest.  

Most days since session began on Jan. 9 were an absolute whirlwind. We could not have made so much progress for kids and families without the help of our partners and supporters, like you. Thank you from everyone at the Colorado Children’s Campaign. 

Our dedicated policy and advocacy team tracks hundreds of bills that impact Colorado kids and families every legislative session. To view the bills we tracked during the legislative session, click here.
