By: | June 2, 2021

Immigrant organizations and undocumented people living in Colorado chalked up a win for a brighter future under Senate Bill 21-077.

Gov. Jared Polis signed the bill into law, which will allow immigrants to pursue a professional career despite their legal status.

SB 21-077 will allow undocumented Coloradan’s seeking higher education to obtain a professional license with the Colorado Department of Education and each division of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agency. The bill eliminates the requirement of legal status to obtain a license, certification or registration in fields like education, health, childcare and more.
