Colorado Governor Jared Polis made a brief stop in Paonia, Colorado on Monday for a bill signing hosted by Orchard Valley Farms and Market. The Governor was flanked by State Representative Marc Catlin and State Senator Perry Will.

Polis spoke within a few feet of the rapid flowing North Fork of the Gunnison River where he talked about HB24-1436 that will allow Colorado voters to determine where revenue from sports betting will go.

The second bill signed was SB24-126 - Conservation Easement Income Tax Credit. The governor mentioned how Orchard Valley Farms and Market recently placed 50 acres in Colorado's conservation program.
