    DRIVE Act

    On July 30, 2015, the Senate passed HR 22, the DRIVE Act, by a vote of 65-34. The DRIVE Act would authorize funding levels for programs supported by the Highway Trust Fund over six years. For cities, the bill represents an improvement over the status quo but leaves room for improvement. Read an analysis by the National League of Cities.

     

    Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act

    The Colorado Municipal League supports S. 2609, the Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act (MITFA), which would give state and local governments the ability to require out-of-state merchants to collect the same taxes as the merchants on Main Street. Read the letter from CML and Colorado Counties Inc. urging Sen. Michael Bennet's support of MITFA.
