Important win for national popular vote bill in CO Senate

A BILL FOR AN ACT CONCERNING ADOPTION OF AN INTERSTATE COMPACT FOR THE ELECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BY NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE.

The Colorado state Senate became the first state legislative chamber to support a National Popular Vote bill in America. The legislation likely will have a final vote in that body later this month.

Since the plan was unveiled seven weeks ago, legislators in five states have introduced legislation to enter their states into the agreement to join with other states to guarantee election of the national popular vote winner.

Stay tuned!
