Denver, CO – The Colorado State Senate today voted 32-to-3 to pass SB19-167, Honor Colorado Professional Fire Fighters, a bill sponsored by Senator Jessie Danielson (D-Wheat Ridge) to create a Colorado professional fire fighters license plate. The bill now heads to the Colorado House of Representatives for consideration.

“This bill will help honor the professional firefighters who work day and night to keep us safe,” said Senator Danielson. “We must have their backs whenever we can, and SB19-167 will help us honor the sacrifices our professional firefighters make on behalf of our communities.”

To be issued the plate, applicants would have to pay two $25 fees as well as make a donation to a nonprofit organization selected by the Department of Revenue.
