2019 Legislative Session Is Complete

In May, we wrapped up a historically productive Legislative session.  Major accomplishments included new laws to address fracking, climate change, full day kindergarten, a red flag gun law, mobile home owner protections, and many others.  I was honored to be elected Majority Caucus Chair for the House Democrats, joining fellow Boulder legislators KC Becker –  Speaker of the House – and Steve Fenberg, Senate Majority Leader, in legislative leadership positions.  And of course, Governor Jared Polis!  If I have one take away in this concentration of leadership at the Capitol coming from Boulder, it is that we represent a community that truly reflects progressive values, which will help bring about a better future for all of Colorado.
