Gov. Jared Polis recently signed the “Emergency Supplies For Colorado Babies And Families” bill. It helps families in need pay for diapers and other essentials.

Many families struggle to afford  diapers  on a daily basis...and the pandemic only made things worse. Some families take desperate measures like using trash bags and paper towels when they run out of disposable diapers. A new state law sponsored by Sen. Brittany Pettersen aims to address the problem.
