Potential for Colo. LARC Program Funding

February 2, 2016 — Funding for a program that provides long-acting reversible contraception to low-income women might be included in the state budget bill, the Colorado Independent reports.

Putting the program on the budget requires approval from at least four members of the Joint Budget Committee. Rep. Bob Rankin (R), who has said he supports the program, would make a fourth vote in favor of the funding, according to theIndependent. However, he has not made a final decision (Goodland, Colorado Independent, 1/28).
