Colorado Senate Bill 13-052 Dies in Committee

On April 17, 2013, the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee voted, along party lines, to postpone indefinitely SB 52. Here is a link to the Denver Business Journal's story regarding the bill and its untimely demise: "Lawmakers kill lawsuit limits on condo defects."

Unfortunately, it will be at least another year before the legislature will have the ability to provide some much needed relief to the Colorado construction industry. I would like to thank those who came out to support Senate Bill 52 and those who contacted legislators to urge their support. As noted by the Denver Business Journal, "[Senator ] Scheffel is a resilient legislator — this is the man who's brought bills pushing some form of business personal property tax relief for five straight years — and you can bet he'll be back with some effort at limited construction-defects tort reform next year." 

Until then, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at mclain@hhmrlaw.com or by telephone at (303) 987-9870 if you have any questions regarding construction law in Colorado.
