Colo. Senate committee OKs Colorado Mountain College four-year bill

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL VALLEY – A bill supporting four-year degrees at Colorado Mountain College – which has a Vail Valley campus in Edwards – has passed its first hurdle in the state legislature. The state Senate education committee voted 7-1 today in support of SB 101, the bill that would allow Colorado Mountain College to offer a limited number of bachelor’s degrees.

“We are pleased with the overwhelming support we received from the Senate education committee,” said CMC President Dr. Stan Jensen. “I’m thankful and excited that they support expanded access to higher education for all of us living in north-central Colorado.”

The next step will be for the bill to go to the full Senate. A date has not yet been scheduled for a hearing there, but it’s likely to be within the next several weeks, say college administrators. If the bill passes the Senate, a similar bill would go through the same steps in the state House of Representatives.
