A bill to extend the life of the state Meth Task Force for another four years is on its way to the governor for his signature.
The legislation was sponsored by Senator Josh Penry and Representative Laura Bradford.
Lawmakers created the task force in 2006 to combat the meth problem in Colorado.
Since its creation, officials have seen a reduction in the number of meth lab busts.
The number of meth lab busts in the state dropped from a high of 450 in 2002 to 46 in 2007, according to a national laboratory database.
