In this episode, we debrief the 10-hour ERPO hearing and HD2 First Lady, Emily Garnett, teaches us about cryptocurrencies
In this episode, we discuss the introduction of HB19-1177, formally known as "The Deputy Zackari Parish III Violence Prevention Act," and informally known as the "Extreme Risk Protection Order" (ERPO) bill. After some brief discussion over what an ERPO is, we hear highlights from the introductory press conference from members of law enforcement, gun violence prevention advocates, and members of the Colorado General Assembly.
In Episode 3, we talk with Representatives Jeni Arndt and Emily Sirota about the National Popular Vote (SB19-042). This bill would replace our current flawed system for electing the President with a simple...national popular vote. This is a ?HOT? topic. More constituents have contacted us about NPV than any other topic this legislative session, so learn about this important issue from its sponsors.
Additionally, we talk about the Super Bowl, Trump's SOTU speech, banjo trading cards, how cool it was to see birds of prey in the Capitol lobby, and obsess over Pablo's Coffee.
