Members Only: See Public Health Bills CPHA Is Tracking For 2017

CPHA members can now follow along as our lobbyist and volunteer leaders track bills during the 2017 Colorado General Assembly.

The session began Wednesday, Jan. 11, and continues until May, during which time anywhere from between 500 to 800 bills are expected to be introduced. 

CPHA's legislation tracking system will track public health bills of interest, and it is maintained and updated throughout the day. Our government-affairs professionals at Frontline Public Affairs assign bills to the list as they are introduced.

Members of Congress have vowed to immediately begin work on legislation to dismantle and repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Repealing the ACA would result in nearly 30 million Americans losing their health insurance coverage and would eliminate the Prevention and Public Health Fund.

We invited our social media followers and members to submit stories about the importance of public health to help change makers understand the potential impacts such actions would have on our communities.  Thank you for your powerful contributions.  We will share these submissions with our legislative delegates.
