2017 Legislative Session
In the 2017 Legislative Session, Senator Neville stood up for the taxpayers, the small business owners and families by seeking to advance Constitutional rights and cut red tape.
He championed legislation to increase individual liberty and guarantee our freedom including House bill 1313 (signed by the Governor) which brings transparency to law enforcement by reforming civil asset forfeiture procedures, requiring increased public disclosure in seizing assets allegedly involved in a crime. Senate Bill 62 (also signed by the Governor) guarantees free speech for all students on college campuses by prohibiting institutions from restricting speech to designated areas. Senate Bill 116 would have restored Coloradans Constitutionally guaranteed second amendment rights by allowing Coloradans to carry a firearm freely in Colorado. The bill was opposed by Democrats and killed in the House. Senator Neville opened the Legislative Session with Senate Bill 1, which would have cut red tape for small business owners, and sponsored Senate Bill 55, to prohibit discrimination against an employee who chooses to not belong to a trade association. Both of these pro-small business bills were opposed in the Democrat controlled House and defeated. He also worked to address Colorado's broken transportation system, sponsoring Senate Joint Resolution 6 urging the Federal government to give back the $661 million it receives through motor taxes to Colorado to use to repair the roadway infrastructure.
Senator Neville serves as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, vice-chair of the Senate Business, Labor and Technology Committee and the Legislative Audit Committee as well as a member of the Senate Education Committee.
Neville's son, Patrick, is currently serving as the Minority Leader of the Colorado House of Representatives.
