DENVER — Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017 — Gov. Hickenlooper issued the following statement on the General Assembly adjourning the 2017 special session without enacting a fix correcting an acknowledged mistake regarding a marijuana tax exemption contained in Senate Bill 17-267.

“It is disappointing that the Republican-controlled Senate refused to fix an error, acknowledged as a mistake by all involved. Coloradans expect us to work together and solve problems. This week, we failed to do so. The special districts will continue to have unintended funding cuts - cuts that will have real implications for Coloradans who rely on buses to get to work, cultural institutions to educate their families, and other services.

“I strongly commend the bill sponsors for all of their efforts. In the end, partisan politics overshadowed the clear intentions of Colorado voters. These tactics only divide us and fuel cynicism. We have been raised to own up to our mistakes and fix them. Most Coloradans believe these values should apply to everyone, especially to government.”
