Capitol Update
Representative Jeni Arndt- HD 53 
Member of Rural Affairs  and Agriculture Committee; Business Affairs and Labor Committee

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week. It sure has been a busy one under the golden dome. 
Congressman Neguse and I at Larimer County re-org.
This past weekend, Larimer County Democrats had their re-org, where new leadership was voted in. I had the chance to catch up with my good friend, Congressman Joe Neguse. 
The Interfaith Alliance.
Monday was the Interfaith Alliance's lobby day at the Capitol. I am working with the group on a bill to end the death penalty in our state. It's great to see so much energy behind this piece of legislation. The bill is being introduced in March and will start in the Senate. Support from the faith community means a lot.
FLTI at the Capitol.
Earlier this week, I had the honor of hosting the Family Leadership Training Institute of Colorado (FLTI). FLTI is a statewide and nonpartisan  organization that teaches people how to create change through civic engagement. They work  hard to represent diversity by celebrating and collaborating with different cultures and age groups. FLTI does important work for our communities and I am always happy to host them on the House floor.
Fort Collins Brewers.
Wednesday was the Colorado Brewers' Guild advocacy day.  It was a great time tasting beer made by local brewers, especially those from Fort Collins. Thank you all for the fun treat!
House Majority Leader Alec Garnett recently launched a podcast that discusses hot topics related to the legislature. I was featured on this week's episode. I talked about the National Popular Vote bill with my co-sponsor Representative Emily Sirota.
