Apr 26, 2023

The Colorado State Senate voted 21-13 to approve SB23-291, a measure that will add new consumer protections aimed at the main causes of the volatile, high utility bills Coloradans faced this winter.

Senate President Steve Fenberg and Senator Lisa Cutter introduced the bill after weeks of expert testimony before the Colorado Joint Select Committee on Rising Utility Rates.
