In the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on April 18, liberals displayed shockingly self-serving and politically biased discrimination against equal protection for all Colorado citizens. Ironically, the context was Colorado’s Civil Rights Division (CCRD) and its accompanying Civil Rights Commission (CCRC), which review claims under Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act. Both agencies are currently undergoing the statutorily required sunset-review process.

DENVER — Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, a Republican candidate for governor, told a GOP group last week she would sign a bill removing protection based on sexual orientation from Colorado's anti-discrimination law. Her remarks drew criticism from the state's leading LGBTQ-advocacy organization, but Coffman later said she meant she would repeal the protection only if it turned out it wasn't needed anymore.

It was founded nearly 70 years ago, before the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, and has its roots in an early state anti-discrimination law that dates back to 1895. But now the state’s Civil Rights Commission is teetering on the brink of elimination — or potentially facing major changes to its mandate and authority — thanks in large part to the Lakewood baker who refused, on religious grounds, to provide a cake for a same-sex couple.

In recent weeks, much misinformation and political hyperbole has been spread about a “Republican plot” to defund the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) and the Civil Rights Commission. As the Senate sponsor of the bill to reauthorize the CCRD and the Commission, I want to set the record straight — for those Coloradans interested in facts, not political grandstanding with more of an eye on November’s election than the business of governing as we are elected to do.
