    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis on Wednesday signed an executive order establishing a new office that his administration says will research the state’s “rapidly changing economy and workforce.” The office, called the Office of Future of Work, will be part of the Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE), and will have to report annually to Polis with policy recommendations. ... Details on what the new office will cost taxpayers were not released. Sage Naumann, spokesman for Colorado Senate GOP, mocked the office on Twitter, saying it’s the third new office created this year. “The Democrats’ insistence on creating a new layer...
  • The political stakes for Proposition CC are huge. It’s a test case for a major fiscal overhaul

    This November, Proposition CC will ask Colorado voters to permanently lift the spending limits in the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, but the political stakes embedded in the question are even more consequential. The ballot question represents the most significant overhaul to TABOR since voters approved the constitutional provision in 1992, and serves as a test case for a broader Democratic effort to overhaul how the state levies taxes and spends money. If voters approve Prop. CC, Democratic leaders and their allies believe it would give them momentum for a broader agenda to revamp property tax rates, increase taxes for key...

    The press office for Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been trying to get media outlets within the state to remove two stories posted online because they object to the source. Earlier this month, writer Derek Draplin reported that Polis had established a new office—the Office of the Future of Work—to research the state's changing economy and workforce and make policy recommendations to the governor's office. Draplin published the article in The Center Square, a nonprofit media outlet. The factually accurate story (read it here) quotes Polis praising the creation of the office, as well as a Colorado GOP...

    ... Polis signed House Bill 1124 on Tuesday. It bars local law enforcement from arresting or detaining a suspected illegal alien solely on the basis of an ICE request. The legislation also prohibits officers from providing a suspected illegal immigrant’s personal information to ICE, and it requires Colorado police to read illegal migrants their Miranda rights when coordinating an ICE interview, the Denver Post reported. ... “Thank you to all of the people who helped to make this a reality and advocate for our immigrant community,” wrote Colorado Democratic state Rep. Adrienne Benavidez, the sponsor of the bill, in a...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - The governor of Colorado is speaking out saying Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham did not provide a warning before sending migrants there. A group of migrants were bused to Denver with the help of the governor's office. The Denver Post reports that Lujan Grisham's office paid $4,000 for the transport of 55 Central American migrants. The Denver Post states that this was in coordination with a nonprofit, Annunciation House, that helps send migrants to Denver due to the overcapacity of shelters. This is reportedly the first time the organization sent migrants to another state. The Denver Post...

    When the Democrats began getting behind letting 16-year-old high school students vote, my guess is that they didn't have Ky Chapman in mind. If you haven't heard of Ky Chapman, don't worry. Unlike other high school students relentlessly pushed by the media as the pubescent conscience of our nation, Chapman isn't liberal. The Colorado resident is also upset with his state's Democrat governor, Jared Polis, over a number of issues. Polis doesn't exactly make national headlines, so it might be good to give a synopsis of what this guy's about. He's probably best-known for signing Colorado on to the National...

    It’s still well under the radar, but the movement to circumvent the Electoral College gained ground this week. On Sunday, Jared Polis, the governor of Colorado, said he would sign a bill to join the National Popular Vote interstate compact, whose members have pledged to give their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. The Maine Legislature, likewise, is mulling membership and will hold hearings to discuss the issue. Attacking those lawmakers, Paul LePage, the former governor of Maine — who still calls into conservative radio shows from his retirement home in Florida — dismissed the proposal...

    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) will sign a measure to award his state’s electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, moving a countrywide coalition one step closer to circumventing the Electoral College. In an interview Sunday, Polis called the Electoral College an “undemocratic relic” of the nation’s past, one he wants to see relegated to the dustbin of history. “I’ve long supported electing the president by who gets the most votes,” Polis told The Hill. “It’s a way to move towards direct election of the president.” Colorado will become the 12th state to join the national popular...

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) is throwing his support behind President Trump’s 2020 reelection bid, a move that could stir trouble for his own electoral prospects next year. Gardner, a onetime critic of Trump, told IJR that he was backing the president, because he believed Trump would do right by the people of Colorado. “Look, there are things here – look, I’ve made it very clear that where I agree with the president, we will agree or where I disagree, we will disagree,” Gardner said. “But I’m going to fight like hell for Colorado, and we’ve done some good things for...

    Former fighter pilot Lang Sias, the Republican pick for Colorado lieutenant governor, called out Jared Polis Friday over a televised misstatement about the National Guard. On KUSA-9News’ Next with Kyle Clark program Thursday, the Democratic nominee for governor said he wouldn’t give President Trump access to Colorado Army National Guard troops to send to the U.S.-Mexico border if he thinks it’s politically motivated. “You could use the same rational to not allow someone to fight in Afghanistan or Iraq,” Clark said to Polis. “Is that dangerous?” Polis replied: “Well, it wouldn’t be Colorado National Guard units going to Afghanistan or...

Jared Polis, the Democratic nominee for governor of Colorado, suggested that he would support criminal penalties for employers who violate the state's labor laws. ... we propose adding real criminal penalties to violations of our labor laws. That's when executives and businesses will notice it.

    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders spoke in Boulder on Wednesday and bashed the rich. The Democratic socialist was so embarrassing the crowd occasionally responded with nervous and underwhelming applause. If one thing is clear about multi-millionaire Sanders, it is his professed disdain for the rich. He has money and his friends have money, yet all the other rich are evil. Sanders came to Colorado to stump all day for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis, who is among the wealthiest men in the country. “Today in America, as all of you know, we have a corrupt campaign system which allows billionaires to...

    A Republican allegation that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis invested in a company benefited by his work as a congressman is now a formal complaint. Former Secretary of State Gessler, a GOP candidate for governor in 2014, filed the complaint Tuesday with the Secretary of State’s Office on behalf of Kristina Cook, a Denver County Republican Party official and conservative radio personality. She and Gessler allege that Polis failed to disclose in his official paperwork that he had invested between $5 million and $25 million in BridgeHealth Medical Inc. “This failure to report his interest in BridgeHealth is not a...

    Democrat Congressman Jared Polis is running for Colorado governor on a platform largely constructed from the splintered and moldering remains of Barack Obama’s failed ideas. His opponent is two-term Colorado Treasurer and solid conservative Republican, Walker Stapleton. Polis would re-impose Obama-esque state government-controlled healthcare that has pounded family budgets with hundreds of dollars in monthly premiums for insurance they can’t even use because deductibles are so high. In Congress, Polis has introduced repeal of the Trump tax cuts that would steal thousands of dollars Colorado families are saving because of the new law, and cost the Colorado state budget hundreds...

    Turns out U.S. Rep. Jared Polis has a lousy record over the history of his congressional career for missing votes, and it got even worse after he started running for governor. How bad? He missed nearly 67 percent of all votes during the primary campaign. Over his career, Polis has missed 5.5 percent of House votes. That might not seem like a high number, but according to Colorado Politics, the average absentee rate is only 2.4 percent. Ouch. To see what a strong voting record looks like, we compared U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman’s and Polis’s 2014 absentee record. Coffman missed...

    Just two years after Colorado voters overwhelmingly rejected a costly, unworkable universal health care ballot measure, Rep. Jared Polis, the Democratic candidate for governor, is sidling up with the same kooky progressives who brought us the failed ColoradoCare proposal by touting "Medicare for all." Coloradans should be skeptical that the $387 Million Man really means, "Medicare for you – but not for me." After all, he can buy his way out of a lousy government health care system after he wrecks health care for the rest of us. Amendment 69 was rejected 79 percent to 21 percent by Colorado voters...
