Colorado Gov. Jared Polis says housing and health care are two of the most critical issues facing Coloradans, and on Saturday he addressed them both during a visit to Eagle County.

In Edwards, Polis signed Senate Bill 23-174, “Access To Certain Behavioral Health Services,” and House Bill 23-1268, “Private Treatment for Out-of-state Defendant.” Fifteen minutes later, from Dowd Junction in EagleVail, Polis signed Senate Bill 23-001, “Authority Of Public-private Collaboration Unit For Housing.”

At both stops, the governor was joined by Rep. Meghan Lukens and Sen. Dylan Roberts. He praised the two Western Slope lawmakers who represent Eagle County for their work in getting the bills through the legislature.
