DENVER (AP)- Proposals providing tax relief for people who lost their properties during the September floods and incentives for wildfire mitigation are among the first bills of the Colorado legislative session.
The first House bill of the year would reimburse property taxes for people whose properties were destroyed flooding last year. Another bill seeks to expedite the repair of irrigation ditches damaged by the floods by allowing people to bypass water court to begin work immediately.
Lawmakers also want to create a tax credit for homeowners who conduct fire mitigation on their properties.
