Representative Mark Ferrandino
Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives
On behalf of the 65 members of the House of Representatives, I welcome you to the Colorado General Assembly’s official website. Your visit means you are engaged in the processes by which the people of Colorado, through their elected representatives, govern themselves.
The General Assembly includes two legislative bodies, the House of Representatives and the Senate. With careful deliberation that involves public hearings and, at times, vigorous debate, the two chambers enact new laws and revise or abolish existing laws; draft and approve the state government’s annual budget; and oversee the various state departments that deliver services to the people of Colorado.
This website includes the same searchable database that we legislators use to find every bill introduced in the House or Senate over the last 15 years; other searchable databases for the Colorado Constitution and Colorado Revised Statutes, with laws dating back to the state’s founding in 1876; descriptions of the roles and activities of the legislative committees that scrutinize every bill; contact information for state legislators and maps of their districts; and information for visitors to the State Capitol in Denver.
Thanks for your interest. We welcome your input.
Senator John P. Morse
President of the Colorado Senate
