    House Bill 19-1329

     

    There has been a flurry of activity in the Colorado Legislature in the last 24 hours regarding changes taxing of fertilizers as a result of the new budget bill put into law last week.

    RMAA has been working on behalf our members, in support of a new bill presented last night by Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg, to circumvent this action and reinstate the sale and use tax exemption for fertilizer and related products.  As you are aware, this issue was addressed several years ago to ensure Colorado did not suffer a competitive disadvantage with our surrounding states.  It is estimated that nearly $800,000 in lost revenue per year will occur should HB 19-1329 not pass.

    Our Legislative Committee took quick action to provide testimony on the bill today, which appears to be on a course to pass handily.  Our lobbyist, Jennifer Cassell continues to monitor the progress of the bill as it moves from the House to the Senate. We’re encouraging you to reach out to your representatives to support this bill.

    RMAA will continue to track and monitor these activities on behalf of our members throughout the region.
