DENVER (AP) - Colorado residents will pay more on household paint to fund a statewide recycling program.

The Democrat-sponsored bill signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper Friday makes Colorado the eighth state to require paint manufacturers to develop recycling or take-back programs.

A tax on household paint will begin in 2015, and is expected to be less than $1 a gallon. That will fund paint take-back programs.

The new law requires paint manufacturers to establish enough take-back sites so that 90 percent of Coloradans have one within 15 miles of their homes.

Republicans opposed the measure.
