Session Summary and 2024 Suppositions

Colorado’s General Assembly officially concluded the 2023 Legislative Session on Monday, May 8th. The CRE community faced several challenging pieces of legislation during the session. Despite the odds, NAIOP and the CRE community in general had several successful outcomes this year, thanks to the help of several testifying members, our Executive Director, Kathie Barstnar, and our lobbyist, Erin Goff, from Husch Blackwell Strategies. Metro districts were under attack, but we managed to stave off HB-1090 and pass SB-110 instead. Read More.
