Senator Steve King (R-Grand Junction) issued the following statement today on the passage of the bill he is sponsoring, SB 13, to allow gifts to old age pensioners:
“SB 13 is reasonable legislation that helps seniors living on a fixed income. This bill recognizes that rent, medical bills, and living expenses don’t suddenly disappear when someone retires. SB 13 helps to relieve financial pressure on seniors and anything we can do to help our elderly citizens is a victory in my book.”
SB 14-013 passed unanimously out of the Senate Finance Committee today was sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee for further consideration.
