I am going to try to make it to ask why he thought it would be a good idea to have a 3rd party group (water congress) study the bill, when that group has already declared they are against the bill. Unfortunately, I am not sure if I will be able to make it that night - but thought I'd spread the word in case other longmont-area peeps would be interested.
If anyone can go, I recieved a email from Senator Hodge, the Senate sponser of the bill. Here is a direct quote "The president has made it clear that there are
certain things he wants in the bill before he'll allow the conference
committee and has asked his chief of staff to work with one of the
attorneys for Lewis Shaw and one of the lobbyists for the bill to see
what they can come to agreement on. I've asked that Rep. Curry be
part of that work." Ask him why an attorney for lewis shaw is negotiating Colorado Law??????!!!!!
