Read the Bill. It says absolutly nothing about "MANDATORY STORAGE" it is only a bill to revise lisencing fees and has a provision for the fees to be adjusted with inflation. It appears the folks on CO have been getting a pretty good deal on licenses and they are trying to get in line with other states. The additional fees go to wildlife eduacation in the state.
That's all it says. I read it. I do my own reasearch instead of believing everything a third party tells me.

The post discusses two seperate peices of legislation, House Bill 1208 and Senate Bill 158. Go back and re-read it.
As for "additional fees go to wildlife eduacation (sic) in the state", yeah, that's the pretense for how this stuff gets sold. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. There have been cases at both state and federal levels where, years afterwards, it's found out that the monies were used to fund all sorts of other unrelated programs, sometimes even anti-gun programs. The fact that you fall so easily into this trap is another indicator that you haven't been paying attention for quite a while.
If you spent half as much time doing your own research on this matter that you spend arguing with me on this forum, you would know all this already.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they referred to a separate bill in the State Senate regarding storage requirments.

Revenues acquired by any state are typically fungible and rarely so dedicated. Most likely, the funds from general revenues now spent on wildlife education will be spent for other purposes as they are replaced by increased fees.
