A Day in the Life:
I thought it would be fun to give you a glance into my life under the golden dome. It changes everyday, but here is what I was up to Wednesday....
I started the day off at an 8:00am breakfast with a group of environmentalists from Conservation Colorado and a few other organizations.
At 9:00am the House came to order. We got straight to work, debating and voting on a variety of bills. I had a bill up for final passage: we won 47-14.
allows reclaimed water to be used in toilets. Now it's onto the Senate.
Upon adjournment of the floor, I had a conversation with a Poudre School Board member about funding for public education. That's when I realized I needed to be in the Finance Committee...whoops! So I ran to Finance.
All four of my bills in Finance passed. Two of the bills where from the Statutory Revision Committee I sit on during the interim. The most important bill was for restorative justice.
On my way to lunch, I addressed the Senior Lobby. l told the group I have a bit of a skewed view on aging thanks to my mom.
I attended two lunches. The first was hosted by the Council of State Governments, where I serve on the Executive Committee. The second lunchtime activity was to attend an information session on blockchain technology.
After lunch, I spoke to the boards of Colorado Weed Control Management Association and the Pest Control Association.
After that, I met with Common Cause to discuss the resolution I am bringing to overturn Citizens United.
When I left the Capitol, I stopped by the Weed and Pest Control Reception and then it was onto dinner with a constituent. That's a wrap.
