Progress Through Policy: 2017 Legislative Outcomes for Colorado Women & Families – 6 bills passed that dramatically impact women and families.


Bills/Issues you should know about…

CITIZENS UNITED – On November 6, 2012, more than 2.4 million Coloradans voted on the referendum calling for a U.S. constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. In all, 1,762,515 Coloradans voted for reform – a whopping 74% majority! The proposal carried every single county in Colorado, red counties, blue counties, purple counties. In Colorado’s Congressional delegation, the sweeping referendum victory moved the state’s two sitting U.S. Senators, Democrats Michael Bennett and Mark Udall, to vote in favor of bringing a Constitutional amendment on campaign reform to the Senate floor. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat representing Denver’s suburbs, co-sponsored a similar measure in the House. But Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn from central Colorado is strongly opposed to constitutional reform. Even after the 74% “yes” vote, five other Colorado representatives hedged where they stand. This OVERWHELMING VOTE in Colorado went no where.  PERSIST!!  Call your congressional representatives and remind them of this MANDATE FROM THE CITIZENS OF COLORADO!!

IN PROCESS – The legislative session is adjourned for 2017

 

 

 

From Rep. Steve Fenberg – Be sure to sign up for updates on all things happening at the Capitol! My team will do all the work to keep you in the loop about the issues you care about most.

 

Republicans block every progressive issue – not on merit, just blindly along party lines. VOTE THEM OUT!!


DON’T FORGET TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL STATE OF COLORADO REPS DIRECTLY!!
