2012 Legislative Session Begins
The first day of the 2012 legislative session is set to begin Wednesday, January 11th and continue until May 9th.  Senate President Brandon Shaffer and Speaker of the House Frank McNulty will address each chamber beginning at 10:00 AM, and Governor Hickenlooper will deliver the State of the State address at 11:00 AM on Thursday, January 12th.  The speeches can be watched on the Colorado Channel 

During the legislative session, the Colorado Rural Health Center will focus on policy priorities to protect funding for rural providers and facilities, to expand the rural healthcare workforce and support innovative models of care, to build support for Rural Health Clinics (RHC) and Community-funded Safety Net Clinics (CSNC), to promote affordable health insurance options that work for Coloradans and to expand rural access to health information technology.  To read more about each priority area, please visit our website.  You may also visit the CRHC website to find a link to our bill tracker, which will be updated weekly throughout the session.
