Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Approve Bill 17-1256 and require more setbacks from schools and neighborhoods for fracking and Oil wells. You are for us the people, not the oil companies. I’m tired of you guys being on the take and not doing the right thing….

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Vote against SB 184. We had a bill passed years ago that prevented smoking in public places. Now, SB 184 would allow smoking of tobacco ad marijuana in public places. Why does the legislature always want to go backwards and restore bad things that had been changed?d

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Give communities local control to decide whether they want to allow fracking and other types of oil and gas development. Several local communities have made it clear in the past few years that they DON’T want this, but have been overruled by state law that denies them the power to make this decision about their own health and safety.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: I’d like to see serious thought given to raising the gas tax a couple pennies per gallon, and perhaps augmenting that with a small registration charge on full electric/hybrid vehicles to make up for their lack of gasoline consumption, and dedicate the additional revenue strictly to road construction/maintenance. And make sure that a certain percentage of repaving is done with RAC (http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/tires/RAC/) so that maintenance is less frequent. Work to pass reasonable condo/multi-unit housing construction tort reform. Work on finding longer term funding solutions for higher education.

I’d love to see some sort of legislation prohibiting anyone who has served as an elected official, or appointed government official from serving as a registered lobbyist in Colorado for a period of a minimum of 3 years after the end of their term or resignation.

I would love to see any efforts to reform health care coverage, and the Colorado marketplace registry be exactly that, reforms, or improvements, and not a wholesale gutting of Colorado’s exchange and/or the A.C.A.

I would like to see current oil/gas regulations remain in place as is. I think that the current balance of environmental protections that safeguard Colorado’s beauty, while allowing for a business climate that allows drillers to operate with profit potential, are working sensibly as is.

Please do not waste any time on laws regarding abortion. They always become a draining waste of time/press/effort, and go nowhere in the statehouse.

Thank you very much for soliciting opinion!

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Do you have hope for the public education for our children? Please vote NO on Betsy DeVos!

What happens when we raise a nation of children who have only learned what their “special interest” schools will teach them? What will these children have in common with each other? Who gets to govern what is taught to them? How will her vision of schooling differ from those who might prefer a radicalized madras that neglects to teach math or science?

We need a voice for public education! Give yourself a good night’s sleep tonight by helping ALL children to learn on the same playing field. Of all the great educators and administrators in our country, surely there can be a more qualified candidate?

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: People ARE shocked to hear you are voting to confirm Betsy DeVos. She has absolutely no experience with public education. She clearly is not familiar with education issues. She supports guns within schools. There are serious conflicts of interest.

People are realizing that the Hearings are a sham. Decisions are being made strictly along party lines.

There has been a public outcry about DeVos’ confirmation. Senator Collins and Murkowski have taken a stand. Their offices have been inundated with supportive phone calls from all over the country. Their position on education resonates with educators and parents . Those large groups expect to be very involved in the next elections.

I sincerely hope that you can be independent enough to vote for what is right as opposed to toeing the party line.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: I would repeal Donald Trump. He is NOT my president. I am an independent who votes across party lines. This man is a threat to our country. He is an insidious person who acts impulsively without bothering to think through his actions. He is a bully and a threat to America.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Sir/Madam,

As a U.S. Navy Vietnam era veteran, retired educator and citizen of the United States, a country built upon the strengths of good people from all parts of the world, I am shocked and dismayed over Mr. Trump’s executive order barring Muslims of 7 countries from entering the United States. In my mind, this action smacks of the red scare and McCarthyism and cannot be allowed in this great nation of ours! We are better than that, and one man cannot be allowed to change the very heart of America.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: I would make sure that President Trump’s abominable Executive Orders in the first week of office do not translate into codified legislation that will harm our country, our people’s human rights, and our standing in the world. Specifically, I do NOT want my Colorado representatives to support any legislation surrounding the entire and total dismantling of the Affordable Care Act. As a mother with a child who was born with a congenital medical condition, he will be refused coverage by insurance companies by repealing the ACA. I also do NOT want to see a halt in refugee resettlements. I do NOT want the Keystone XL Pipeline to be built. And I most definitely do NOT support building a wall at the U.S. Mexico border.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Get rid of ACA and expand the government employees health coverage plan to cover all Americans. Our employees should not have better health care than we the people (the employers of the government employees) have. The coverage through ACA is mediocre coverage at best, I know from experience. Connect for Colorado has done a fine job treating their employees well while screwing over the general public, they did it to me.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: While I’m troubled and saddened by a multitude of the policy changes being proposed or enacted by the new administration in the last week, at the forefront of my mind is the potential repeal of the ACA and defunding of Planned Parenthood. As a woman I feel strongly that the women of Colorado and American have the right to access affordable health care, particularly to preventative care and the birth control of their choice. While I can appreciate that some people have a moral opposition to abortion (I support a woman’s right to choose), the knee jerk reaction to defund an organization that provides reproductive health care service (mostly NOT abortions) to hundreds of thousands of low income Americans seems unwise. Federal funding does not fund abortions, but helps to provide STD testing, mammograms, cervical cancer screenings and contraception which all seem to me to be particularly uncontroversial services. Please think twice before voting against the ACA and Planned Parenthood, let’s give women the health care they need to be a productive part of our society!

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Don’t help Donald Trump take away health coverage from thousands of Coloradans. We need to improve the ACA by getting the profit motive out of health care. Health care should not be an “industry”. The US spends more on health care since “for profit” corporations have been on board and we have a shamefully poor record on outcomes. The hospital and pharmaceutical players must be contained.
Mental Health care must be made more available in the health care system and not in our prisons and jails.
Continue full funding for Planned Parenthood.
Don’t try to take away abortion rights (again).
Don’t hold public schools hostage to further a political agenda.
Don’t make it easier to send unvaccinated kids to Colorado schools.
Do something about TABOR’s fiscal chokehold on the state.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: 1. Support our environment in every way possible — why would anyone do otherwise? To damage our planet, our home, and expect it to magically support humans in spite of us treating the planet like we would not want to be treated ourselves is absurd.
2. Support making positive changes to Colorado’s existing healthcare. Keep the Medicaid expansion. It allows people who have had sudden medical catastrophes to continue receiving needed medical care so they can continue contributing to society.
3. Do not try to to change what is not broken. Immigration and women’s healthcare rights are issues that have settled out. It is time to move on to more other issues.
4. Repeal TABOR.

A: 1.) Overturn Citizen’s United. Get big money out of politics and let the people’s voices be heard! America belongs to us, not a group of billionnaires. 2.) Strengthen the ACA, do not repeal it. 3.) NO private school vouchers. 4.) Protect public lands – do not exploit them or sell them off. 5.) Make public servants accountable: create malpractice laws applicable to elected officials..

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Before enacting legislation to repeal the affordable care act, I recommend developing a comprehensive plan to replace it. As a healthcare provider I find it irresponsible to repeal a law which provides health insurance for 30 million additional Americans, without having a reasonable alternative in place.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: 1) As an educator, I am concerned about kids without necessary vaccinations attending schools and exposing other kids who may not be able to have vaccinations because of health conditions. Please require vaccinations for all children who don’t have medical conditions that prevent them from being vaccinated.
2) I’ve seen the massive number of oil wells in northern Colorado, and many of them are close to houses, schools, and businesses. A number of local governments have tried to protect their citizens from encroachments by drilling operations and wells. Please enact laws that allow local governments to have the right to control how close oil wells and drilling operations can be to other land uses.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: 1Repeal the legalization of marijuana – the revenues it brings in is not worth the disastrous
effects it has had which are wide spread across the states! Drugs are rampant and this has not helped to lessen the impact it has increased the impact and turned Colorado into a joke. Denver has such a homeless and drug problem that it cannot afford to clean it up – how very strange to use the funds generated from marijuana sales to clean up homelessness and drugs in the inner city – go think about that!

2)Change the system of voting that the Republicans used for the Presidential election in Colorado…it was a mess and an embarrassment!

3) Support Trump to the fullest – don’t act like the rest of the country and act like spoiled children
who did not get a second piece of cake. People accepted Obama, when he was not their choice without causing such horrendous scenes and bad manners. Let him change the affordable Care Act – it is failing and he ca fix it..let hem try!

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: 1. Please strengthen and improve the ACA, do not just get rid of it!
2. Recognize that climate change is real, that is is largely caused by human activities, and seek to lessen our reliance on fossil fuels. Also recognize that Colorado as a state can benefit by embracing clean energy technologies.
3. Did you know that our Colorado universities have some of the top climate scientists in the WORLD? That they bring in millions to the state in research and education dollars? Don’t allow our first-rate programs to be decimated, defunded and demonized by forces of ignorance.
4. Strengthen and improve the ability of the EPA to do its job, which is to PROTECT THE PUBLIC from polluters. Don’t continue the stupid game of hobbling this agency and then blaming it for not working. We need to leave an environmental legacy to the next generations.
5. Don’t sell off public lands! This movement has a huge impact to the outdoor community, the outdoor industry, and people who have chosen to live and pay taxes in the state of Colorado. We love our public lands, don’t give them away to the highest bidder.
6. Don’t allow de-funding of programs that support reproductive choice.
7. Respect the separation of church and state. Don’t assume all your constituents worship the same god, or any god.
8. Get rid of TABOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9. Recognize that fracking can have serious environmental and economic consequences, and ensure that the oil and gas industry is appropriately regulated. It is currently under-regulated.
10. Recognize the serious environmental and economic consequences of mining and other extractive industries, and ensure that we have appropriate regulations in place to prevent the mistakes of the past from recurring. Gold King Mine is only the tip of the iceberg.

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?
A: Repeal the legalization of marajuana. It has turned our state into a drug den, an attraction for hard drug users and dealers. It has allowed the cartels to operate grows and set up operations for smuggling in our state. It has compromised the safety on our roadways triggering an increase in hit and runs. It has compromised the safety of our construction industry and the greater workforce with persons attending to work activities while high. This is a huge public safety concern. The entirety of the metro Denver area smells of marajuana because of grows, how is this healthy for our children? What are the long term affects of this exposure? We don’t know because there is little case study and zero regulation! How can this be, everything else in our world especially items that are consumed or inhaled are so heavily regulated. These regulations are in place to protect the public but absolutely nothing for marajuana! Since marajuana is illegal there is no federal oversight so it’s left to Colorado. How can Colorado continue to be so reckless with the safety of its residents. Something needs to be done this single act is causing a public safety epidemic in Colorado. Who will be on the hook when this goes awry? There is no big tobacco to blame this time only the all cash marajuana business entrepreneurs that will evaporate as fast as they appeared. This will leave the State of Colorado holding the bag. Can our state treasury afford a massive class action payouts for marajuana related claims like tobacco was forced to do?

Q: If you could change or repeal a law or laws, what would it be?

Although the Republican Senate Leader has called for “free market solutions,” that just means health insurance companies will be free to discriminate against Coloradans with pre-existing conditions and will be free to cancel coverage when someone gets sick.

A: Protect the Affordable Care Act, make changes, but don’t remove it. Colorado Oil & Gas Act should be protecting it’s communities from the oil and gas companies, not destroying them. Finally protect Coloradans from Fracking! Campaign Finance Reform…this needs to happen and it should go hand-in-hand with overturning Citizens United.
