The Gold Dome

 The gold dome that provides a sentinel over downtown Denver is home of the Colorado Capitol and the annual General Assembly.

Here are legislative committee hearings and other events of note for the week ahead at the Colorado state Capitol.

Committee schedules are subject to change. The daily schedule is available on the legislature’s website.

Testimony and safety protocols for testifying in person at the state Capitol: 

"Members of the public and the lobby may submit written testimony on any bill from the time the bill is scheduled until the committee takes action on the bill. Remote testimony will also be available through the Colorado General Assembly website. Members of the public and the lobby are encouraged to participate remotely in lieu of testifying in person. Our goal is to increase public accessibility as much as possible while ensuring safety in the Capitol.

"Members of the public, lobbyists and staff who participate in a committee hearing in person must wear a mask for the duration of the committee hearing and maintain social distancing while in the audience. Individuals providing testimony in person will register to testify by filling out an electronic form, rather than a paper sheet. The form will be available one hour before the scheduled start time of the bill hearing."

House procedures for remote testimony, including how to sign up, can be found here.

Senate procedures for remote testimony, including how to sign up, can be found here.
