Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reports

HB 19-1188 requires Legislative Council Staff to prepare greenhouse gas emissions reports for up to 20 bills each year starting with the 2020 legislative session.  Greenhouse gas emissions reports estimate whether a bill is likely to directly cause a net increase or decrease in greenhouse gas emissions over a 10-year period.  The reports will identify new sources of greenhouse gas emissions, any increase or decrease in emissions from existing sources, and any impacts on sequestration of emissions. 
Additional information about the process and methodology for greenhouse gas emissions reports is available here:
