Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Happy summer! Independence Day is this upcoming Tuesday and I hope everyone gets to celebrate this historic day with their loved ones. It has been 241 years since the Declaration of Independence was adopted, declaring the Thirteen Colonies their own nation. For those of you looking for fun, the annual City of Fort Collins Fireworks Display will start at 9:35pm at City Park. See you there!

(Grain elevator and shipyard tour in New Orleans.)
I started this month off with a trip to New Orleans for NCSL's Ag Task Force. Task force members met with agriculture-focused legislators to discuss federal and state ag policies and rural development issues. We spent a day touring the Port of New Orleans, where I learned a lot about its extensive infrastructure and moving grain from our breadbasket to the rest of the world. Thank you NCSL for getting this great group of people together and facilitating insightful discussions. 

(Learning about the Telluride Water Restoration Project.)
I had my first meeting with the Water Resource Review Committee a couple of weeks ago. This committee travels to various basins and rivers around the state to learn about projects happening to protect the integrity our water. This trip took place on the Southwestern Basin, where we learned about the restoration projects happening along the San Miguel River and the Dolores River. Local water managers, conservation groups, and community leaders are doing some great work in this part of the state.
Up next, I am headed to Breckenridge for a legislative meeting on clean energy that is hosted by CSU's Center for the New Energy Economy. 
As always, feel free to call me anytime at 970-231-5090 or email me at jeniarndt53@gmail.com.
