Senator Michael Renfroe has submitted his scamera ban yet again in the legislative session. This time the ban has the support of House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, a democrat. This is truly bipartisan legislation that needs to be signed into law! Mr. Renfroe has tried this ban on multiple occasions and his bill has been killed in committee, usually on party lines. The time to act is NOW!

Explain to them why you want this legislation to proceed. Be sure to also contact the Governor, John Hickenlooper and give him the same information. Hickenlooper is the former mayor of Denver and supported the program as Mayor. I have a feeling this would be one of the few bills he would veto if given the chance.
Make no mistake, it’s going to be a tight push to get this legislation through. Renfroe submitted this bill in 2012 and it was killed in committee before it could go to the floor to even be debated. Contact your elected representatives, contact your friends and family and have them do the same! The Colorado Municipal League and the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police oppose this bill. That in and of itself should be enough to make you want to support it.
