HB 17-1134: Holding Colorado government accountable for creating sanctuary jurisdiction policies

The bill creates a civil remedy against the state or a political subdivision, including school districts, and against its elected officials, including school board members, for creating sanctuary policies. The bill also creates a crime of rendering assistance to an undocumented citizens, including students, that can be brought against an elected official for creating a sanctuary jurisdiction.

Legislative procedure in Colorado requires every introduced bill to have a hearing in committee. The committee members will either support the bill and vote pass it out of committee for consideration by the full body, or kill the bill and vote to “indefinitely postpone” it.

The motion in the House Judiciary Committee was to “indefinitely postponed” the HB 1134 so the pro-education vote was a “yes” vote.
