Groups Urge Governor to Sign Colorado Ozone Bill, Call for Strong Action From Interim Committee

May 8, 2023

DENVER, CO — Conservation and community groups celebrated passage of the Protecting Communities From Air Pollution Act today and called upon Governor Jared Polis to sign the bill into law. The bill, sponsored by Representatives Bacon and Willford, as well as Senators Gonzales and Winter, was pared down to ensure passage of key components this year following strong opposition from the oil and gas industry. The groups have urged legislators to convene an interim committee this summer to advance the strongest possible action on ozone pollution.
