As a headwater state, providing water to 7 states and two countries, we have to continue to refine how we capture, store, treat and deliver this precious resource. I have many issues that I will be working hard on, but protecting Colorado water and preserving our rights in regard to water will be very high on my list.
Obviously, the first priority has to be cutting costs to recover from the $3+ Billion shortfall in the state budget. I know the JBC has already reviewed and is making recommendations the week of 6-1-20 to the House and the week of 6-8-20 to the Senate. One line item that I would oppose is the elimination of the Senior Property Tax Exemption. I don't believe that the relative small savings is worthy of putting the burden on the backs of our seniors, many of whom are on a fixed income.

After we have this crisis in our rearview mirror, we have to take a hard look at our responses the last few months and learn from history. A big part of that will be providing better definition around what powers can be enacted through Executive Order and what requires approval from the Legislative branch.
