Colorado Legislature Passes Health Care Plan Cutting Costs 15%

The Colorado legislature passed health reform legislation that requires private insurers to offer a state-regulated plan reducing costs by 15%, the Colorado Sun reported Tuesday.

The legislature also approved a measure establishing a fee for single-use products, such as plastic and paper grocery bags, and banning Styrofoam in restaurants, the Sun reported.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis, a Democrat, is expected to sign both bills. Democrats hold majorities in the Colorado House and Senate.
