Water can be a contentious issue at the Capitol and elsewhere in the state. In Colorado, 85% of the water is owned by agricultural interests, and most of it originates on the western slope. However, the bulk of the population lives along the front range.

What I have done:
*Sponsored successful legislation (HB 06-1124) to encourage local cooperative efforts to allow for fallowing and leasing
*Carried SB06-132 to continue the Domestic Wastewater Treatment Grant program and enable unincorporated communities to build wastewater treatment plants
*Been a member of the Interim Water Resources Review Committee for seven years - Purpose is to contribute to and monitor the conservation, use, development, and financing of water resources for the welfare of Coloradoans. The Committee proposes water resources legislation.

What I will do:

Work to bring all stakeholders to the table and craft win-win solutions, such as
*creating storage for the western slope in wet years
*enlarging existing storage and
*encouraging local cooperative efforts
