In 2019, the Colorado general assembly enacted, and the governor
subsequently signed into law, the Canadian prescription drug importation

program (program) in the department of health care policy and financing
(department). The bill states that the department may expand the program
to allow a manufacturer, wholesale distributor, or pharmacy from a nation
other than Canada to export prescription drugs into the state under the
program if certain conditions are met.
If, upon the satisfaction of these conditions, the department
decides to expand the program, the executive director of the department
shall notify the president of the senate, the speaker of the house of
representatives, and specified legislative committees, of the department's
intent to do so. The executive director shall provide the notice at least 30
days before the program is expanded, and the notice may include any
recommendations of the department for legislation to amend the program
to reflect its expansion.
