Colorado 2019 Legislative Session Tracking

One of the most valuable aspect of CPS is legislative advocacy for Colorado pharmacists at the Colorado Capitol.  Did you know that CPS monitors and lobbies 20 to 30 bills every legislative session? These bills often deal with drug pricing, pharmacist scope of practice, and reimbursement.
