Legislative Center

Learn about the latest updates in advocacy and legislative affairs. 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 2,600+ 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.

CVMA Bill Tracker

The 2022 Colorado legislative session kicked off on January 12, 2022. As always, CVMA will actively monitor and engage with bills that have the potential to impact the veterinary or animal welfare communities.

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

There have not yet been bills introduced that CVMA has taken a position on. The bill regarding the renewal of the Veterinary Practice Act is expected to be introduced at the end of January. This page will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
