SB20-125 has passed the Senate and next moves to the House.
The bill to ban wild animal circuses in Colorado passed its third reading in the State Senate on Wednesday, February 26, with a vote of 18-14 in favor of the legislation. The bill, also known as the Traveling Exotic Animal Safety Protection Act (TEASPA), now heads to the State House of Representatives. Introduced just last month, the bill is quickly moving through the legislative process.
