One example is Senate Bill 21-248. Representative Holtorf was proudly the House Co- Prime sponsor of this Bipartisan Bill, which addresses the loan and or grant program for Colorado Agriculture. This transfers money to programs like the Farm-to-Market infrastructure. This provides eligible applicants with low interest rates for farms and ranches in Colorado. The fund has thirty million dollars allocated and is suggested to be divided up with twenty million for loans and ten million for grants. This has been presented as a legislative intent; the Governor of Colorado has this bill before him at this time to be considered and signed. This will also be a good place for the smaller micro beef processing plants to look at for assistance

Last Friday, Colorado House Republicans fought long into the night to defend the agricultural industry against SB21-087, a bill brought forth by metro Democrats.
The legislation seeks to impose new restrictions and regulations on ag workers and their employees, resulting in much higher costs. One thing about this bill is clear, it will do irreparable damage to Colorado’s agriculture industry.
