Alliance Honors Joint Budget Committee In Grand Junction

State Representative Bernie Buescher accepted an award Tuesday afternoon on behalf of the Colorado Joint Budget Committee, in honor of its commitment to those with developmental disabilities.

The award was given by the consortium Alliance and Buescher, who serves on the committee said that meeting the people who he not only serves but helps, is what being a legislator is all about.

Alliance handed out the award particularly for the joint budget committee's efforts to earmark Referendum C funds to restore services to people with disabilities, along with assuring that children under the age of 3 will not have to wait for services.
