SB23-168, "Concerning gun violence victims' access to the judicial system." This legislation gives gun violence victims and survivors the ability to take legal action when firearm industry members violate standards of responsible conduct. We urge support. #copolitics #coleg The testimony against SB-168 is riddled with misinformation as usual.

GET THE FACTS: Gun Industry Immunity — @GiffordsCourage… #copolitics #coleg

We waited all damn day! #HappyValentines #copolitics we are here to say VOTE YES on HB23-1120 🔥

This bill will ensure that TANF, SSI, and SSDI tenants are protected with mediation and support to remedy #eviction

We know ppl w/ disabilities get evicted more often
🔥 First we get to hear from the apartment association, which we intend on meeting with a lot on the off season ✨

They are very upset about extending a eviction 20 more days for tenants. It is verrrrry inconvenient they say.

@RepSnyder85 has great questions #copolitics

.@KerryTipperHD28 says that Jan 6th was the
"logical result of months of carelessness, recklessness and intentional maliciousness led by the president...
[the riot included] past + *current members of THIS body."
*She's talking about insurrectionist Rep. Ron Hanks
#CoPolitics In response, @RepDaveWilliams gives a long-winded "there were good people on both sides" argument, noting that his colleague Rep. Hanks is "absolutely not" an insurrectionist...
despite the fact that he was very much at an attempted coup of the U.S. government.
