One of the joys of being a state representative must be the opportunity to call and hold a town hall meeting.
This Saturday, freshman state Rep. Tony Exum Sr. will be hosting his first town hall meeting of the 2013 session. He will be joined by Boulder's Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, the House majority leader.
On tap will be a discussion of the two bills that Exum has so far introduced this session.
HB 13-1123 "authorizes a person, including a veteran, to waive confidentially requirements applicable to the person's personal information, obtained by the division of employment and training in the department of labor and employment from the person's claim for unemployment benefits, to enable the division to make the information about the person available to potential employers. The division is directed to offer this waiver to applicants for unemployment benefits."
HB 13-1119 "requires the department of revenue to place the word 'veteran' on a driver's license or identification card if the person presents the proper documentation. A dishonorable discharge does not qualify."
If you want to talk shop with Exum, stop by Sand Creek Library (1821 S. Academy Blvd.) Saturday morning by 10:30.
