GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT TELL US WHAT TO BUY, HOW TO LIVE OR WHAT TO BELIEVE
I am honored to represent you in the Colorado House of Representatives. I am dedicated to less government intrusion in our lives, protection of our constitutional rights, and a future for our children and grandchildren that is prosperous and full of unlimited opportunities. I am also committed to being a good steward of your taxpayer dollars.
I am pleased that four of my 2015 legislative bills were signed into law.
- Data Privacy and Domestic Violence Victims: Expand confidentiality in state/local government internet databases for domestic violence victims, including their residential address
- Regulation Exemption for Small HOAs: Exempt small homeowners associations from most state regulations. Without these exemptions, individual homeowner assessments would have likely increased.
- Flood Mitigation (Waldo Canyon): Protect flood mitigation efforts and existing storm water infrastructure from costly, time-consuming water court lawsuits – this legislation was essential to protect El Paso County flood mitigation efforts in Waldo Canyon
- Veterans Assistance: Expand financial assistance from the state Military Family Relief Act Fund (funded through the Colorado Check-Off) for military active duty, Guard, and Reserve who deploy.
Since transportation infrastructure improvements are one of my top priorities, I offered an amendment to the Colorado budget to increase transportation funding as a priority within our existing budget. Unfortunately, this amendment failed along party lines. Transportation funding to maintain our roads and bridges should be a budget priority, and not a partisan issue. Transportation infrastructure is a core government function. I will continue to advocate for equitable allocation of transportation dollars for El Paso County.
As your representative, I am holding frequent town halls to hear your views and discuss state issues. For information on upcoming town halls click here. You can also contact me at RepCarver@yahoo.com or 425-7590. Your concerns and suggestions are important and guide my legislative priorities.
I look forward to working with each of you as we strive to make Colorado prosperous and full of unlimited opportunities.
Sincerely, Terri Carver
