Gov. Ritter Signs Historic Renewable Energy Bill

"With HB 1001 we will manufacture and install panels and turbines all over Colorado to capture free energy,” said Rep. Tyler said. “The sun will always shine for free, the winds will always blow for free, and our energy production will be cleaner. Renewable energy, green jobs, and a cleaner future -- what's not to like?"

Representative Max Tyler (D-Lakewood/Golden) was the lead sponsor of House Bill 1001, which calls for an increase in the state’s Renewable Energy Standard from 20 percent to 30 percent by 2020.  In other words, by 2020, nearly a third of the power generated from large utilities like Xcel must come from renewable sources.

The bill is expected to diversify our energy sources and create thousands of jobs in the New Energy Economy. An increased RES will give Colorado the best clean-energy requirement in the Rocky Mountain West, create thousands of new jobs and lead to 100,000 solar rooftops over the next decade.

Rep. Tyler’s Bill on Property Tax Late Fees Passes Timely Floor Vote

- Representative Max Tyler’s (D-Lakewood/Golden) House Bill 1046, which gives citizens paying their property taxes by mail some wiggle room for meeting their deadline if a postmark is not present, passed a floor vote today with no debate.

The bill gives clear legal guidance to county treasurers for determining whether property tax payments are sent on time if no postmark is present on the envelope.  The bill states that if payments are received within five days of the due date, the treasurer is to record the payment as being on time.  

“This bill represents a fair way to make paying property taxes a little less stressful,” said Rep. Tyler.
