ESTES PARK - Today, Governor Polis signed the following bills into law in ceremonies in Denver, Commerce City, and Estes Park.

In a ceremony at the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch of the Denver Public Library, Governor Polis signed legislation to protect Coloradans’ right to repair, saving them money and reducing waste:

  • HB24-1121 - Consumer Right to Repair Digital Electronic Equipment, sponsored by Representatives Brianna Titone and Steven Woodrow, and Senators Jeff Bridges and Nick Hinrichsen. View the Governor’s signing statement.

“Protecting our right to repair our own broken equipment will save money, strengthen small businesses, and reduce technology waste. Today we are building on our work to protect Coloradans' right to repair to ensure manufacturers cannot force Coloradans to pay extreme repair costs,” said Governor Polis.

  • HB24-1338 - Cumulative Impacts & Environmental Justice, sponsored by Representatives Manny Rutinel and Elizabeth Velasco, and Senator Dafna Michaelson Jenet.
  • HB24-1295 - Creative Industry Community Revitalization Incentives, sponsored by Representatives Brianna Titone and Leslie Herod, and Senators Steve Fenberg and James Coleman.
  • HB24-1358 - Film Incentive Tax Credit, sponsored by Representatives Leslie Herod and Marc Snyder, and Senators Kyle Mullica and Mark Baisley.

“Supporting our creative industries like film will strengthen our local economy, enhance tourism, and solidify Colorado as the best state to visit and work in. This bill will help bring film makers to the many community gems in Colorado, just like the Stanley Hotel here in Estes Park,” said Governor Polis.
