Bill bad for kids

My family and I have called Colorado home for decades. In my husband’s case, his family is one of a few Colorado pioneer families. I have never in my life have I seen the will of Coloradans so blatantly ignored by the men and women we elected into the state Legislature. By no means am I normally this outspoken when it comes to politics, but I can no longer stand on the sidelines when it comes to the future of my state. Just when I thought the debate on this issue would conclude following Proposition 112 being overwhelming defeated in the November 2018 elections, here we are again.

As a mother, I prioritize what is best for my children — and I think we can all agree, well-funded schools are the key to our children receiving the best education. I’m all for giving our elected officials the benefit of the doubt. However, not this time. I genuinely do not think those supporting this bill understand the far-reaching ramifications such an extreme piece of legislation will have on our children’s future. Under this proposed bill, Colorado’s energy industry will suffer greatly resulting in a detrimental decrease in tax revenues allocated schools across our state.

Politicians often peddle the phrase “elections have consequences,” but it seems as if they are not practicing what they preach. Coloradans have made it loud and clear –– natural gas and oil should have a home here too.
