CO Senate Passes Bill to fund Wildlife Highway Crossings

On May 3, the Colorado Senate passed the bill to provide $5 million in funding for wildlife highway crossing projects on areas of roads that experience high rates of wildlife -motor vehicle collisions. In short, the Safe Crossings for Colorado Wildlife and Motorists bill (SB 22-151) would set up a “Colorado Wildlife Safe Passages Fund” with a $5 million appropriation. A very good start. The Senate co-sponsors are Senators Danielson and Story. the House co-sponsors are Representatives McCluskie and Will. CWF strongly supports the bill. Next step is the Colorado House.
