Governor John Hickenlooper signs 21 bills into law today.
This includes a bill for tuition for dropout recovery program students which means students who participate in those programs will receive payment.
Plus a bill to promote water conservation of designated ground water.
That means there will be safeguards to prevent the modification of a final designated ground water permit based on reductions in the use of designated ground water.
House Bill 13-1043 was also signed which modifies the definition to a deadly weapon.
The definition now includes a firearm (whether loaded or unloaded).
Plus a knife, bludgeon, or any other weapon capable of producing death or serious bodily injury when used.
Another bill allows those who are 18 years of age and in a youth correctional facility to register and vote.
Other bills dealt with identity theft, protection orders to parolees, and Habitat for Humanity.
