Senator Kerry Donovan – Legislative Update

This session so far…

Here’s a link to all the bills I am currently working on: Kerry’s Bills


A Couple of Highlights

SB19-075 Display Original Colorado Constitution – The bill requires the state archivist to develop and implement a plan to provide a permanent public display of the original Colorado Constitution in the state capitol building. This bill passed out of State and Military Affairs yesterday on a 4-1 vote! Here’s an article highlighting the hearing.

Last year’s bill didn’t pass:

HB18-1312-  Open Internet Customer Protections In Colorado – Concerning the protection of the open internet by disincentivizing internet service providers from engaging in practices that interfere with the open internet by limiting the provider’s access to available funds if the it is found to be responsible for such practices.

I hope this year’s does:

HB19-078 – Open Internet Customer Protections In Colorado – Concerning the protection of the open internet, and, in connection therewith, disqualifying an internet service provider from receiving high cost support mechanism money. This bill will be heard Monday.

Senator Kerry Donovan Endorsed by Sierra Club & Conservation Colorado

The campaign trail is pretty exhausting. Between Friday and Sunday we drove about 575 miles and knocked doors in three counties. But when you run into someone at the door that remembers you from the 2014 campaign, or get endorsed by partners you admire, the miles don’t seem as long.

I am proud to be endorsed by both the Sierra Club and Conservation Colorado. 

I hope I can earn your support too.

Our public lands are the centerpiece of our quality of life and are the economic engine of many communities across Senate District 5. Protecting these lands, and the environment they encompass, is going to take a lot of work and I am so glad to be part of the team dedicated to our streams, mountains, plains, lakes, canyons, and meadows that create the landscapes we love.

contribution to my campaign will help to reach out to voters across the seven counties I represent. And with unknown attacks waiting from Secretary Zinke, we must have electeds at the state level that will keep our public lands in public hands.

Thank you for your support,
