Public Policy & Legislation

During each legislative session, we track numerous bills that address important issues that affect our freedoms, and when appropriate, we provide testimony around these bills in the Colorado House and Senate.

Legislative Updates
Each legislative session, the ACLU of Colorado tracks the bills that impact civil liberties, and where necessary, we take a position of support or opposition. Our Legislative Updates page lists the bills we are most concerned about and their current status in the legislature.

Legislative Database
Our Legislative Database catalogs all the bills we’ve monitored in recent years. Search or browse it to gain historical perspective on all of our legislative victories and defeats.

Legislative Scorecards
In past years, the ACLU of Colorado has published a scorecard for civil liberties. The scorecard highlights many of the bills that we felt had the biggest impact on civil liberties. The voting record of each legislator was included to provide the public with an easy way to see the stance of their elected representatives on many key civil liberties issues.
