Section 1 of the bill states that Colorado shall have statewide goals
to reduce 2025 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26%, 2030
greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50%, and 2050 greenhouse gas
emissions by at least 90% of the levels of greenhouse gas emissions that
existed in 2005.

Section 3 specifies considerations that the air quality control
commission is to take into account in implementing policies and
promulgating rules to reduce greenhouse gas pollution, including the
benefits of compliance and the equitable distribution of those benefits, the
costs of compliance, opportunities to incentivize clean energy in
transitioning communities, and the potential to enhance the resilience of
Colorado's communities and natural resources to climate impacts. The
commission will consult with the public utilities commission with regard
to rules that affect the providers of retail electricity in Colorado.
