Executive Director of Colorado Energy Office Kicks Off Council Meeting

 

Will Toor, the newly-appointed Executive Director of the Colorado Energy Office, visited the Chamber’s Energy & Environment Policy Council meeting on Wednesday, February 27th. He laid out Gov. Polis’ priorities for the office, including transportation electrification and encouraging renewable energy use.

The Council also discussed updates to the federal “Waters of the U.S.” rule and its impact on Colorado, as well as upcoming legislation at the State Capitol.

Council Votes to Oppose House Bill 1188, Amend House Bill 1113

The Chamber’s Energy and Environment Council took new positions on several bills under consideration at the capitol:

  • The Council voted to oppose House Bill 1188, by Reps. Emily Sirota and Marc Snyder. The bill would require future fiscal notes on legislation to include an assessment of whether the measure is likely to directly cause a net increase or decrease in greenhouse gas pollution in the 10-year period following its enactment. The bill is scheduled for a hearing Monday, March 4 in the House Energy & Environment committee.
  • The Council voted to amend House Bill 1113, by Sen. Kerry Donovan and Reps. Dylan Roberts and Barbara McLachlan, which broadly impacts the mining industry and permitting. The chamber previously opposed the legislation as filed. Recent changes have prompted the council to pursue additional amendments. The bill is set in the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee on Thursday, March 7.
