The 2015 Colorado Legislative session officially wrapped up last week. This year, Rep. Millie Hamner served on the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) which is given the responsibility to develop a budget for the state to operate under. Fortunately the group was able to complete the task. After all, it’s a constitutional requirement for the state legislature to pass a balanced budget.

Most relevant to local voters was the passage of HB-1060, which requires that defendants in sexual assault cases to appear before a judge prior to their release from jail on bond.  The bill was sponsored by Rep. Millie Hamner, who also led the charge to pass Vonnie’s Law back in 2012.
