In May 2019, Colorado Governor Polis signed into law the Climate Action Plan To Reduce Pollution. This legislation aims to reduce 2025 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26%, 2030 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50%, and 2050 greenhouse gas emissions by at least 90% of the levels of statewide greenhouse gas emissions that existed in 2005. 

The legislation’s title demonstrates that in Colorado great emphasis has been placed on climate change’s connection to air pollution, and thus to health.
