Just because the legislative session is on break doesn’t mean that I am…
It has been a busy few months since the Speaker of the House adjourned the 2017 legislative session May 10th. Now that it is over, I have some time to reflect on what happened, meet with stakeholders about future legislation, and take an in-depth look at serious policy issues on my interim committees until the start of the 2018 session next January.
I am thankful for the opportunity to represent House District 59 and am enjoying my time on several interim committees and commissions. This interim I will serve as the Vice-chair of the Young and Beginning Farmers Interim Study Committee, a member of the Transportation Legislation Review Committee (TLRC), a substitute member of the Water Resources Review Committee, and a member of both the Colorado Tourism Board and the Scenic Highways and Byways Commission.
Most of the interim committees are still finalizing their schedules; I am looking forward to sharing some of the transportation needs of HD59 during the first of four field trips around the state with TLRC in Southwest Colorado at the end of this month. I want to hear your thoughts on how we can improve our transportation system in this area. Let me know your ideas by filling out this form!
