Lawmaker looks to strengthen Colorado’s Consumer Protection Law

Colorado’s Consumer Protection Act could see a major overhaul.

A bill at the state Capitol would make some of the biggest changes to the law since it was passed more than 50 years ago.

Colorado ranks 12th highest in per capita reports of fraud but our consumer protection law is ranked the 48th weakest in the nation.

“I believe Coloradans deserve the same protections from unfair and deceptive practices as consumers from blue California to red Mississippi,” said Representative Mike Weissman, who is sponsoring the bill.
