Policy and Legislation

DRCOG serves as a forum for addressing regional issues and acts as an advocate for regionalism through its legislative and policy development activities at the national and state levels. Position papers on state and federal issues are published each year.  DRCOG's legislative activity is generally focused on the following types of issues.

  • Proposals of special significance to the Denver region, or which would have a unique effect upon local governments in the region
  • Proposals that affect DRCOG as an agency or that would affect one or more of its programs
  • Legislation to implement DRCOG special task force recommendations

DRCOG is especially focused on advocacy for the region's growing senior population, and on addressing the transportation challenges.
