Priority issues for the 2018 legislative session:

SB18-010: Necessary Rental Documents This bill requires landlords to provide renters with a copy of a lease and a receipt for rent payments made with cash or a money order. Receipts would be given automatically if rent is paid in-person, and upon request if rent is mailed or paid by drop box. This ensures that tenants have the pertinent information about the expectations of their tenancy and can document their rent
payments.

Promoting Tax Relief and Homeownership for Working Coloradans This bill would repeal the state sales tax on the purchase of a new manufactured home. Doing so will save Coloradan families pursuing affordable homeownership on average $1,000 at the time of purchase. Considering that the average sales price of a new manufactured home is $66,100, this bill will save these families a substantial amount of money.
