The 70th General Assembly will be continuing on January 13th and I am excited to announce that I am serving as the Vice-Chair of the Health, Insurance and Environment Committee, as well as on two other committees; Public Health and Human Services and Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources. It has already proven to be a very busy and active legislative session and I am looking forward to continuing to work hard for Colorado.

We have received good news from our state economists regarding Colorado’s economy. Colorado is outpacing the nation in economic growth and in job creation. However, we know that not everyone is benefiting from this growth, so our efforts during the 2016 legislative session will continue to focus on providing opportunities to Colorado’s middle class.

There will also be a wide variety of major issues coming up in our 2016 session.  Here are some of the topics:

  • School Finance
  • Standardized Testing in Public Schools
  • Continued Implementation of Health Care Reform
  • Colorado’s Water Plan
  • Marijuana Edibles

I look forward to doing the best job I can as your State Representative from House District 52.  Thank you for re-electing me to be the “voice” for everyone in Fort Collins and Colorado.  It is an honor and a privilege I take very seriously. To stay up to date, sign up for my newsletter and follow me on Facebook and Twitter. I’m here to serve you.
