The bill provides additional options for financing forest health

governments as authorized by current law to establish
special improvement districts within the boundaries of the

combination and levy special assessments on property
specially benefited by improvements, functions, services or
facilities, including forest health projects, that the separate
legal entity is authorized to provide;
  • Counties, municipalities, special districts, water
conservancy districts, the Colorado river water
conservation district, and the southwestern water
conservation district to conduct or participate in and
finance forest health projects; and

tax revenue for forest health projects.
The bill also postpones the scheduled repeal of the statute that
authorizes the Colorado water resources power and development
authority to issue bonds to fund watershed protection projects and forest
health projects from July 1, 2023, to July 1, 2033.
