Statement from AG Coffman on the Legislature Approving the Department of Law’s Supplemental Funding
Today the legislature funded the Department of Law's supplemental budget request for fiscal year 2017. The vote was bi-partisan and consistent with the Joint Budget Committee's recommendations.
After initially dying in the State House, the Department of Law's request was resurrected in two Senate bills. Both bills passed the Senate and House by a significant margin.
Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman expressed satisfaction with the bills' passage stating "These appropriations will help ensure that the State's legal records are protected from cyber-attack and also allow the Colorado Department of Education to receive necessary legal services. My office takes its fiscal responsibilities seriously, and we appreciate that our elected representatives did the same by approving this modest request.”
