The main focus of these advocacy efforts occur with the Colorado General Assembly. CML employs a dedicated advocacy team, which is a reliable source of information about legislative issues and their impact on Colorado's cities and towns and their residents.
At the end of each session, the advocacy team provides summaries of laws enacted. The 2017 Colorado Laws Enacted Affecting Municipalities is available here.
