AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins released the following statement today in response to states, including Colorado, beginning to answer concerns over racial injustice, law enforcement practices and disparities:
An accurate census count is critical to ensuring Colorado receives billions of dollars in federal funding for programs that support residents of all ages, such as Medicaid and housing assistance.
Lowering prescription drug costs, more oversight for public utilities and affordable housing are also on AARP's legislative agenda.
On May 16, Governor Jared Polis signed into law SB19-005, Import Prescription Drugs From Canada, a bill sponsored by Senators Joann Ginal and Robert Rodriguez, as well as Rep. Sonya Jaquez Lewis, to lower the cost of prescription drugs for Coloradans by importing them from Canada.
