Tell Colorado senators that farmers and ranchers can’t wait for affordable fertilizer!
Thanks to an influx of emails to the House urging leaders to make fertilizer affordable, HB19-1329 passed unanimously (65-0) off the House floor! THANK YOU for your hard work!
However, the work isn’t over. The bill now moves to the Senate where many bills are waiting to be heard and if not passed soon, the bill risks missing the deadline. There are less than 3 days left so you must act now! Urge the Senate to follow the House and Vote YES on this bill and do so NOW!
As a reminder, HB19-1329 reinstates a long standing policy of exempting fertilizers, important agricultural inputs, from sales tax. Agricultural goods are normally exempt from sales tax, but a rule change a few years ago did not include fertilizer. This bill will clarify and revert back to the original intent of the exemption. With a long list of bills yet to be heard, we can’t wait until next year! Urge legislators to Vote YES now.
