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 ...

Polis Lauds FCC Vote to Increase Funding for E-Rate
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today released the following statement lauding the FCC vote to increase funding for the E-Rate Program, expanding internet access to low-income and rural schools and libraries: “In order to succeed in the 21st century economy, our students need access to the tools that power the 21st century economy. At a time when so much of Washington is broken, it is encouraging to see that some progress can be made, particularly in an area as critical as expanding the speed of internet access to schools and libraries. “This vote comes on the heels of President Obama’s announcement of an additional $1 billion for early education, and reinforces the administration’s commitment to providing opportunities for all children to succeed no matter what their zip code. I am thrilled that E-Rate will be receiving this infusion of $1.5 billion and I will continue to work tirelessly to support innovative programs and ideas that improve the quality of education for
Polis Fights Against Massive Erosion of Campaign Finance Limits Included in Omnibus Bill
Today, Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) joined Representatives Ted Deutch (FL-21), Alcee L. Hastings (FL-20), Donna Edwards (MD-04), Jim McGovern (MA-02), and John Sarbanes (MD-03) in submtting an amendment to the House Rules Committee striking language included in the Omnibus Appropriations bill that drastically increases how much money America’s wealthiest donors can give to political party committees. If Division N, Section 101 of H.R. 83 were to become law, a single individual could donate over $777,000 a year or $1.5 million per federal election cycle to the three Democratic and Republican party committees, directly undermining the McCain-Feingold reforms passed by Congress in the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002.  “Our political system is already overwhelmed by money from special interests and the superrich, even with our current campaign contribution limits,” said Congressman Jared Polis. “There is no conceivable reason that we should be increasing cont
Colorado Congressional Delegation Sends Letter Urging VA, KT to Negotiate a Path Forward for VA Hospital
Today the Colorado Congressional delegation sent a joint letter to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Kiewit Corporation, and Turner Construction, urging immediate negotiations to determine a path forward to continue construction of the VA hospital in Aurora.  The letter, co-signed by the entire Congressional delegation, laid out the need for a short and long-term solution and the importance of the construction project for the veterans of the Rocky Mountain region and the State of Colorado.  "The veterans of the Rocky Mountain West have waited more than a decade for this hospital, and 1,400 construction workers are being sent home right before the holidays with their jobs in jeopardy as this project sits idle," the delegation wrote.  "Given the size, scope, and importance of this construction project to our veterans and the State of Colorado, we urge in the strongest terms possible, for immediate negotiations between the VA and KT resulting in a new contract
Polis Votes Against ‘CROmnibus’ Spending Bill
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today voted against the so-called “CROmnibus” spending bill which passed the House of Representatives this evening. The bill was brought under a closed rule and no amendments were permitted to be brought up on the floor prior to the vote.  “This spending bill is a perfect example of why Congress has such a low approval rating,” said Rep. Polis. “Members were shown this 1600 page bill for the first time less than 48 hours before voting on it. Those of us who took the time to read the legislation found that it was swollen with pork, back-room policy riders, and misplaced spending priorities. “ “I voted against the ‘CROmnibus’ because it does nothing to address our out of control deficit spending, funds wasteful defense projects at levels millions of dollars higher than the Defense Department or Administration requested, and includes policy riders that shred our campaign finance laws, trample on the will of DC voters, and increa
