Recently, key lawmakers in Denver voted against a bill that made it harder for our veterans and their families as they try to get back on their feet after the pandemic.
SB21-260, Sustainability of the Transportation System, will:
- Increase costs for Colorado veterans. Increasing the cost of gasoline, ridesharing, delivery services, rental cars, and more will make it harder for Colorado veterans to recover after the pandemic, especially seniors and low-income veterans.
- Raise the cost of goods and services. SB21-260 will raise the cost of goods and services, not only making it more expensive to get to and from work, but also raising the cost of everyday goods like groceries, clothing, and school supplies.
- Deny Colorado veterans the right to vote on “fee” increases. Colorado voters just passed Proposition 117 this past November, which requires that these types of “fee” increases be voted on by the people. SB21-260 denied them the opportunity to make their voice heard.
Thankfully, several key lawmakers in Denver showed principled leadership by voting against this burdensome bill.
