Several new laws are now in effect in Colorado.
They are among a dozen new laws that took effect Tuesday.
One new law provides treasury bonds to participating banks and lenders for renewable energy and efficiency projects. The new law will finance energy-efficient structures by marketing loans for clean energy improvements to homes and businesses.
Another will create new businesses and high-paying jobs in Colorado by offering a tax credit for so-called angel investors who provide much-needed funding for early-stage technology companies.
