Capitol Update
Representative Jeni Arndt- HD 53
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We are entering the third week of the 71st General Assembly and it seems like my days just get busier and busier! I started last week by attending the Fort Collins MLK March, where a record number of people marched from Old Town Square to CSU. This was followed by an inspiring presentation that revolved around the theme "Justice Now".
  
On Tuesday, I had some fantastic guests on the House Floor from the National Young Farmers Coalition. The NYFC ensures young farmers and ranchers, who are willing to learn and work, are successful and can feed themselves and their families in farming. 

On Thursday, I had my first bill make it out of committee with a 9-0 vote. HB17-1005 is a bipartisan bill that updates some old and outdated statues pertaining to the State Auditor's Office. This bill was recommended by the newly created Statutory Revision Committee that I began serving on this summer. The SRC has the goal to "modify or eliminate antiquated, redundant, or contradictory rules of law and to bring the law of this state into harmony with modern conditions."
Thursday evening, I attended the 111 year old National Western Stock Show, an event I look forward to every year. The Stock Show and CSU have a long history together of sharing research and honoring agricultural in America. This year's Stock Show saw the third highest number of overall attendees at  684,580 visitors!
 
This morning, I had the honor of presenting the Colorado Youth Corps' 2016 Corpsmember of the Year Award to Cabel Vanderwarf. I was a member of the Youth Corps when I was younger, so this was a real pleasure. Throughout this year, Cabel immediately emerged as a leader with his crew. His eagerness to work and attention to detail were complemented with patience to assist others. He earned the trust and respect of his fellow members, and his sense of humor and kindness helped his crew perform at their best. Congratulations Cabel!
