First Bill Signing of 2016, Town Hall March 12
On March 9, I had the pleasure of attending my first bill signing ceremony of the 2016 session. Gov. John Hickenlooper signed House Bill 16-1008 into law, a bill that allows buses to operate on highway shoulders. Hopefully the need for buses to do so will be rare, but there might be times when adverse conditions (such as icy roads or accidents) create a situation where running buses on the shoulder might relieve congestion and help get commuters to their destinations in decent time.
Also, we are holding a Boulder town hall meeting March 12, 10:00 a.m. until noon, at the Boulder Chautauqua in its Community House. Speaker of the House Dickey Lee Hullinghorst and Representative KC Becker will also be on hand, and all three of us will speak and field questions. The meeting is free and open to the public, and I hope to see you there!
