Colorado FOP PTSD Workers' Comp Bill Up for Committee Vote This Monday
Posted On: Apr 19, 2014

IMPORTANT UPDATE – This Monday, April 21st at 1:30PM the Colorado FOP’s PTSD Workers’ Comp Coverage bill will be voted on in the House State Affairs Committee.  There will be no testimony.  We will be offering amendments to the original bill (see below).

On Wednesday, April 16th the House Local Government Committee convened at 1:30 PM today to vote on the FOP's Peace Officer Workers Comp bill. We had prepared a couple of amendments that were drafted to try and address the expressed concerns of certain committee members while not weakening the bill.

In addition we had an amendment prepared that created a legislative task force of key people including the Colorado FOP to examine in depth the broader aspects of this work related health issue in law enforcement to include research on prevention, treatment, and workforce education. The task force would report its findings and recommendations on best policies and pratices for employers to the 2015 legislature.

We had enough votes to move the amended bill out of committee. However, because of a procedural issue that is too lengthy to explain here we learned that we would be unable to introduce the amendments and that the original bill would have to be voted on. Without the amendments we were not certain the bill had enough votes to pass.

A last minute and seldom used legislative procedure saved the day and kept the bill alive. We were able to have the Local Government Committee vote to refer the bill to the State Affairs Committee for hearing and vote. As such it will now move to the State Affairs Committee where we will be able to introduce the amendments and with any luck move this matter to the entire House body for debate and vote. Bottom line is the bill is still alive and not quite on life support. We will keep you informed as this difficult process unfolds.

Why The F.O.P.? 
"No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the F.O.P."


In what has been an ongoing effort to seriously weaken or destroy the Denver Sheriffs Deputies FOP Lodge 27, the City of Denver manufactured an internal case and fired one the FOP’s top leaders and most outspoken advocates for union rights. Frank Gale is fighting this action and the FOP's attorneys are certain Frank will prevail.  It will be a long hard fight.  In response to requests from across the country a support fund has been established to accept donations to provide Frank financial aid through this difficult financial time.  Please give what you can.
