Gov. Bill Ritter signed several bills today, including House Bill 1204 and House Bill 1148 that will support better business practices and help conserve water.

“House Bill 1204 is an important step in conserving Colorado’s water and ensuring that we are moving forward with sustainable water standards for the future,” said Gov. Ritter. “Conservation is a critical component in managing one of our state’s most precious resources – water. Our state’s livelihood depends upon a reliable water source, from recreation to agriculture to business to our families, and we must be prudent with our use of it.”

Conservation standards under House Bill 1204, sponsored by Rep. John Soper and Sen. Lois Tochrop, include water efficiency fixtures and installation guidelines that meet or exceed national standards. The bill also encourages the use of locally produced materials.

"By adding 'conservation' to the plumbing code, the legislature will send a clear message that we need to ensure the future availability of clean water for all Coloradans," Sen. Tochtrop said.

House Bill 1148, sponsored by Rep. Cheri Gerou and Sen. Abel Tapia repeals the continuing professional competency requirement for an architect to maintain his or her license to practice architecture in the state.
