Bill Summary

The bill requires:
  • The state climate action plan to include specific measurable goals based on the best available science, the achievement of which will both reduce Colorado's greenhouse gas emissions and increase Colorado's adaptive capability to respond to climate change, along with associated near-term, mid-term, and long-term deadlines to achieve the goals; and
  • The annual climate report to the general assembly to include an analysis of the progress made in meeting the measurable goals and deadlines specified in the plan. The analysis must include an estimate of the economic, social, and health impact on low-income individuals in Colorado that results or would result from meeting the deadlines as planned.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
