With the Colorado legislature starting up this week, citizens may understand the legislative process better by going to the General Legislative Resources web site. On this site is a chart, How a Bill Becomes a Law, illustrating the steps a bill takes throughout the House and Senate. A companion narrative, The Legislative Process, explains the process in more detail. Another link, Terms Used in the Legislative Process, is helpful in understanding the above sites. Additional information on testifying, term limits, Colorado Revised Statutes, and links to relevant state agencies make this a good starting point for understanding our law making process.
