Gov. Bill Ritter, D-Colo., recently signed 12 bills into law - among them is Senate Bill (S.B.) 91, which calls for the state to create a map by Oct. 31 showing all electricity generation and transmission lines across Colorado to determine which areas could support renewable energy projects.

"The bills I'm signing today send a very clear message that we will be stubborn stewards of Colorado's natural resources, Colorado's environment and Colorado's future," Ritter commented during the signing. "It was important to me that we sign these bills in the communities where they will have the most impact and where they will do the most good."

Colorado's House of Representatives voted in favor of S.B.91 63-1 - the Senate passed it with a 34-0 vote.
