New Colorado laws include beer rules

DENVER (AP) – A bill that would allow people to carry around an alcoholic beverage at the Colorado State Fair and another that would put the word “people” first in legislation instead of stigmatizing them with labels are among 165 new laws going into effect on Wednesday.

Other new laws include a requirement for people who bury human bodies in private cemeteries file the location with the county clerk, seniors can buy a lifetime state parks pass for Coloradans age 64 or older, and retailers will be barred from charging service fees for gift cards.

The new laws are going into effect 90 days after the end of the session because of a state law that allows voters to challenge any measure not vital to the “health, safety and welfare” of the state.
