Greg Fulton, President, Colorado Motor Carriers Association, details why the bio-diesel mandate in SB20- 38 should not become law in Colorado. Although the bill may have good intentions behind it, it will be costly for operators of over-the-road, agricultural and construction vehicles and consumers. Greg asks us to make our statements known when the bill is heard in the House Energy & Environment Committee on Monday, March 9th, at 1:30pm in Room HRC0107. You can submit comments via email to your legislators or committee members directly if you are not available to attend. The complete bill with a fiscal note and greenhouse gas analysis is available at http://leg.colorado.gov/bills/SB20-038.
Helen has written two articles in The Federalist. The first article looks at the similarities between Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and Bernie Sanders. Do not be fooled by Sanders’s rhetoric as he and Chavez are made from the same ideological cloth. Both emphasize the “working class struggles,” and that “capitalism is a road to hell.” Chavez instantly nationalized a number of industries, including healthcare and housing, upon taking control of Venezuela, and this is what Sanders is promising. Chavez said “being rich is inhuman,” and Sanders “doesn’t think billionaires should exist.” Helen’s second article highlights eight Coronavirus lessons to learn from China: age makes a big difference; those with pre-existing health conditions are more vulnerable to infection; stay calm; healthcare workers deserve extra protection; good personal hygiene habits and self-quarantine can be helpful in minimizing the spread of the virus; you don’t need to wear a mask if you’re healthy; being cured doesn’t necessarily mean you’re Coronavirus-free and; free speech and free press are the best disinfectants to the Coronavirus.
