DENVER—Today, Colorado Springs Republican Representatives Terri Carver and Dan Nordberg attended the bill signing ceremony to witness the governor sign their bill, House Bill 1054, into law. The bill strengthens cooperation and communication between military installations, the state and the local host communities to enable stronger partnerships, help cut costs for services and increase government efficiency.
“This bill is good government and common sense—identifying areas where local communities can partner with military installations in providing needed services more efficiently and at less cost,” said Carver. “Military bases are a critical part of the local community—as we know very well in El Paso County! This bill demonstrates Colorado’s commitment to our military installations as a critical economic sector in the state economy.”
