Elections matter. This is a refrain that has never had more meaning in Colorado than during this past legislative session. The 2018 election brought in a wave of progressive Democrats who took control of the Capitol with an ambitious agenda. They were ready to pass legislation affecting insurance, healthcare, employee/employer relationships, drug pricing, family leave, landlord tenant relationships, climate change and more. With the trifecta control of the Capitol—the House, Senate, and Governor’s office—the Democratic Party was in charge and their agenda was put into motion.
