The Keep Coloradans Housed Bill will help Colorado families stay in stable homes. Under consideration by the Colorado Senate, it will protect working families from bad actor landlords who charge excessive late fees and move to illegally evict struggling tenants.
Last year, after a bill-drafting error kept nine special districts in Colorado from collecting their already voter-approved tax revenue from retail marijuana sales, Gov. John Hickenlooper decided a legislative fix couldn’t wait until lawmakers returned in January and called a special session. Many Republican lawmakers, however, felt that the special session was a waste of time and taxpayer dollars, and ultimately stopped a solution from passing through the Colorado Senate.
