The 2017 Colorado Capital Conference, held in Washington, DC, was co-hosted by CU Anschutz Medical Campus Chancellor Don Elliman and our partners Colorado Mesa University, U.S. Senator Michael Bennet and U.S. Senator Cory Gardner.
May 11, 2016 marked “sine die,” the final day of the 2016 state legislative session.The State Relations team actively worked on and tracked many bills of interest to CU and University of Colorado Health stakeholders. Major legislative topics this year included higher education funding, tuition classification, capital construction, cybersecurity, and health care.
In this edition, we highlight a number of key initiatives the Office of Government Relations was involved in during the final months of 2015, and provide a preview of what 2016 might bring on both the policy and political side of things from both the State Capitol and in Washington, DC.
