Alert: Bill Headed to Colorado General Assembly
Thank you for your dedicated participation in our effort to prevent onerous regulation of yoga teacher training programs (“YTTs”) in Colorado.
Yoga Alliance® remains actively engaged with our state decision makers to enact bipartisan legislation that will exempt YTTs from the reach of the Colorado Division of Private Occupational School’s (“DPOS”) unnecessary and burdensome regulations.
We expect a bipartisan bill to be introduced in the General Assembly this week that would implement such an exemption.
We understand that the DPOS is holding a regularly scheduled meeting tomorrow. However, while we expect the DPOS’ staff members to update the DPOS board members on the status of legislation exempting YTTs from regulation, there are no official items on the meeting agenda related to yoga. Due to the sensitivity of ongoing negotiations in the General Assembly, we recommend that yoga community supporters refrain from attending this meeting.
However, given that we expect imminent action by the General Assembly on our issue, there will be opportunities later this week to show support at hearings and to appeal to legislators directly. We will keep you informed about the status of impending legislation and important dates and times as soon as we gather this information.
