Colorado Green NowHB 1178 Defeated: Local Government Pesticide Control

We extend our sincere appreciation to all GreenCO and ALCC members, as well as our partner organizations, for your unwavering support in defeating HB 1178. We're pleased to share that the bill has been effectively deferred until May 9th, eliminating the need for a vote on the House floor.

This success is a result of the combined efforts of our coalition. Your dedication to opposing this policy is truly commendable, particularly within the context of a Democratic supermajority House.

Looking ahead, the ALCC anticipates potential future attempts to introduce similar legislation. Landscapers and their partners must join together to safeguard our industry against these types of threats. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to express appreciation to the legislators who played a role in this achievement. Keep an eye out for our forthcoming "thank you" action alert, which will guide how to convey your gratitude.

Lastly, we extend a heartfelt thank you to all the lobbyists who tirelessly advocated for this cause. Their perseverance and advocacy efforts have been pivotal in our fight against this bill over the past five years. Your steadfast support is truly appreciated.
