One of the most vital and impactful things CVMA does is advocate on behalf of the veterinary profession in Colorado. Without the strength of our 2,000+ members behind us, and without your annual membership dues, we cannot effectively work under the golden dome to protect you, your practice, and the veterinary profession in Colorado. We fight to make sure legislators know how proposed bills can help or hurt your livelihood, veterinary medicine, and animal health and welfare. This is no easy task and no one person alone could hope to achieve what we can accomplish when we come together as a single voice. Together, we can protect veterinary medicine. Read on to see how we have been working to advance veterinary medicine in Colorado.

Legislative Affairs

The 2019 Colorado legislative session closed Friday, May 3 and will reconvene January 8, 2020. CVMA actively monitored, supported, and opposed several bills that had the potential to impact the veterinary or animal welfare communities.

For full bill descriptions, actions, and status of all the bills followed, see the CVMA Bill Tracker.
