The motion passed with a 6-5 vote and with only a slight amendment, mostly in reference to appropriation.
The bill was introduced on January 22nd, 2010, by Colorado State Representative John â€œJackâ€ Pommer, who is also Chair of the Appropriations Committee, and Senator Rollie Heath. If fully ratified the bill is expected to commence on March 1, 2010.
