IQ: Legislature 2000

by

comment

The 2000 Colorado state legislative session has begun, and there's a lot of work to do. Gun control, school reform and controlling urban sprawl are hot-button, high priority issues, according to Gov. Owens. Will our delegation make us proud? Do we even know who they are?

Do you know who your state representative is? I don't.

What is the most important issue before the state Legislature this season? I know that they're talking about voting on something to do with schools and school reform. I don't know if that's more important than anything else to me, though. Yeah, it is a big deal, for sure.

If you were governor, what would be your top priority? My top priority as governor would be to make sure that everyone is fed and has a warm place to sleep.

Do you know who your state representative is? I'm not familiar with the one from my district.

What is the most important issue before the state Legislature this season? I think trying to curb youth violence.

If you were governor, what would be your top priority? Youth violence and the growth problem. Trying to manage the growth; instead of it managing us.
