Second Session of the 69th Colorado General Assembly
Thank you for taking the time to read my first newsletter of the Second Session of the 69th Colorado General Assembly. Throughout the year, I will be posting periodic updates to keep you informed of issues affecting our district and state.
As always, I encourage you to contact me with any thoughts and concerns you may have. I look forward to staying engaged with you throughout the legislative session.
Colorado House of Representatives
House District 14
HB 14-1003-Concerning A Non-Resident Income Tax Deduction For Disaster Relief Workers:
Individuals from other states are currently liable to pay Colorado income tax on income derived from all sources within Colorado. This bill exempts non-residents from the state income tax if they perform emergency-related work on critical infrastructure that has been affected by a declared state disaster emergency. The measure would also provide an exemption to non-resident emergency service workers (Example: fire-fighters) if they provide emergency service work related to the declared disaster emergency. The exemption would only be in effect for 60 days following the Governor’s disaster declaration.
HB (No Designation Yet): Concerning The Requirement
This bill requires at least 60% of both houses of the general assembly to approve any law that creates a new fee or increases an existing fee. With over 340 state sanctioned fees, costing Colorado taxpayers millions of dollars a year, the Legislature needs to increase their oversight of Government Agencies and ensure the fees they create aren’t just new taxes in disguise.
