Giving the People a Voice
To: Members of the Colorado Republican Senate Caucus
We the undersigned respectfully request that you defer the consideration of House Bill 16-1454 until the next regular session of the general assembly. The delay we seek is for the purpose of providing adequate time for public input and debate relating to how Colorado’s presidential nominating process should be conducted. We desire a public forum where the concerns related to the 2016 process may be heard, and potential solutions discussed, whether those solutions relate to improved political party processes or the conduct of state-conducted presidential primaries. HB16-1454 was introduced suddenly with an abbreviated public hearing with little public notice. Please allow broad participation in any legislative solutions by delaying HB16-1454 and supporting our desire for an organized public forum for these important deliberations on the manner in which we nominate the President of the United States.
