Dome on the Range tour!

Chuck Malick, Western Colorado Congress’ long-time lobbyist in the Colorado legislature in Denver, will be making his annual “Dome on the Range” tour to the Western Slope this coming week!

Plan to attend one of these meetings to learn more about the outcomes of this year’s legislature and what’s on the horizon for 2013, as well as to share your ideas with Chuck and your fellow WCC members.

  •     MONTROSE:  Wednesday June 20 at 2:00 pm, Lions Park/Clubhouse, 602 North Nevada
  •     GRAND JUNCTION:  Wednesday, June 20 at 6:30 pm, Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 1022 Grand Avenue
  •     PARACHUTE:  Thursday, June 21 at 10:00 am, Parachute Public Library, 244 Grand Valley Way
  •     STEAMBOAT SPRINGS:  Thursday, June 21 at 3:30 pm, Trillium House in Steamboat Botanical Gardens

WCC has been a strong force in the legislature over many years and we can make things happen, but that is most likely to happen if we plan ahead and have a good strategy.

If we work during the summer — finding bill sponsors, identifying allies and opponents, working with regulators — it is possible to craft a bill that stands a good chance of becoming law.  Potential issues include gas drilling, methane capture, public lands, Governor’s Energy Office, etc.   Also, there are some political appointments that we might want to have some influence on.
