DENVER — Tuesday, June 20, 2017 — Gov. Hickenlooper issued the following statement regarding the Joint Budget Committee’s vote on funding for the Colorado Energy Office.
“We are disappointed that the Joint Budget Committee, voting along party lines, denied our request to fund the Energy Office. Based on my conversations with leadership, I had hoped for a different result. The Colorado Energy Office plays a vital role in promoting innovative production and efficient consumption practices for all energy resources. The Energy Office administers a wide range of programs that save Coloradans millions in energy costs. These include weatherization services to low-income households in all 64 counties, free energy audits and technical assistance to agricultural producers, and financing for energy improvements to commercial properties. We will continue to explore all options to fund this important work.”
