Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

President signs K-12 education bill into law
President Obama today signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act, a bill to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and replace the existing law known as No Child Left Behind. The rewrite – which hasn’t been done since 2001 – will move states beyond the stringent, outdated policies of No Child Left Behind, help reduce the amount of testing in our nation’s schools, and give more decision-making power back to states and districts. “Today is a triumphant day,” Polis said. “This morning, I joined President Obama as he signed the Every Student Succeeds Act into law and put the nearly 15-year era of No Child Left Behind officially in the past. Every student and every school in the country has been affected by the well-intentioned, but outdated policies of No Child Left Behind. Today, we finally replaced it with a law built on the principle that we should empower schools to help students achieve, not subject students and teachers to a one-size-fits-al
Polis Response to the President's State of the Union Address
Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02) released the following statement tonight in response to President Obama's final State of the Union address before Congress: "Tonight the President urged Congress to make 2016 a year of action, and I echo that call in the strongest terms possible. "Under seven years of President Obama’s leadership, our nation has made extraordinary progress in several areas – a historic international climate accord, a DREAMer program that has helped over half a million Americans build lives in this country, a modern education law to replace the outdated No Child Left Behind, historic civil rights gains for LGBT Americans, and 70 consecutive months of job growth. "But our work is far, far from complete. Because of congressional inaction, our economy is still suffering under a broken immigration system that has needlessly torn apart thousands of families and forced millions of aspiring Americans to live in the shadows. Students in every state are forced to ma
President Signs Five-year Highway Bill, Includes Polis I-70 Amendment
An amendment authored by Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02) to designate I-70 from Denver to Utah as a Corridor of High Priority was signed into law today as part of a five-year highway transportation bill. It’s the first long-term transportation bill to be signed into law in more than a decade. With this Congressional designation, I-70 will now be eligible for certain federal funding streams to help with maintenance and improvements on what is a notoriously congested highway, especially during peak ski travel times. High-priority corridors are given preferential consideration when applying for discretionary grant programs like the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) and newly established Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects, as well as financing opportunities like those established under the Transportation Infrastructure and Financing Act (TIFIA). “We all know what it’s like to sit in miles of traffic heading up to, or back from, our world-class
Polis, Amash urge House leaders to stop warrantless surveillance in year-end spending legislation
Representatives Jared Polis (D-CO) and Justin Amash (R-MI) sent a letter to House leaders today calling for provisions restricting warrantless government surveillance in any upcoming government-funding legislation. Thirty-five of their House colleagues also signed the letter. The letter – which is addressed to Speaker Paul Ryan, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, and Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Nita M. Lowey – specifically requests the inclusion of five privacy-focused amendments that passed the House earlier this year with bipartisan support. The amendments would stop taxpayer dollars from being used to fund activities including warrantless bulk data collection and backdoor searches by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the National Security Agency (NSA). “Though there are many divergent views among Republicans and Democrats on a variety of spending matters, the need to safeguard the Constitution’s Fourth Amendm
