Telecomunications and TABOR will be two of the main topics discussed when representatives of Club 20 sit down for their spring meeting this weekend in Grand Junction. The board of directors kicked off the two–day meeting Friday, discussing, debating, and voting on a number of proposed policy resolutions.
Specifically, they will deal with the Tax Payers Bill of Rights and Colorado's budget crisis, higher education, and health care. On the environmental side of the legislative table issues are wolf management and use of the state's natural resources.
President Reeves Brown says for more than 50 years, Club 20, now representing 22 Western Slope counties is still lobbying government entities for the betterment of Western Colorado communities.
The real action begins Saturday for members of Club 20 and the general public. On the agenda, U.S. Senator Wayne Allard will speak, as well as U.S. Congressmen John Salazar and Mark Udall.
There will be a debate on TABOR, and the educational program will focus on telecommunications technology and how it's changed the world in which we live. There will also be an update on the expansion of the Interstate 70 mountain corridor and homeland security.
Also, outgoing University of Colorado President Betsy Hoffman
will discuss the status of the college.
