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: DOL Home Care Rule ‘a long-overdue victory for millions of working families’
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), the ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, released the following statement today regarding the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) Home Care Final Rule, which took effect with enforcement this morning: “After years of legal battles, home care workers are finally receiving the bedrock minimum wage and overtime protections that members of all other industries are afforded. That’s a long-overdue victory for millions of working families throughout the country. While this rule does not fix the problems of low wages and inadequate workplace protections that American workers in all industries face, it will help two million low-wage home care workers provide for themselves and their families and enable seniors and those with disabilities to have a more stable support system. I thank the DOL for their efforts on behalf of the growing ranks of home care workers in the United States, and I’m proud to have worked with the
Polis statement on Appeals Court’s deferred action ruling
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) issued the following statement today in response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit’s decision not to lift the preliminary injunction that has temporarily halted the implementation of the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program: “Yesterday’s decision was disappointing, but completely unsurprising. Fortunately, and after an inappropriately long delay, the decision finally cleared the way for the Department of Justice to appeal this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court, and I’m pleased that the Administration has announced its intention to do so immediately. “Nearly a year ago, after decades of negligent inaction by Congress, the President announced a series of meaningful changes that will help align our immigration system with our values as a nation and meet the needs of a 21st-century economy. Since then, however, various governors who have chosen to prioritize their political aspirations over fixing our broken immigrat
Polis Selected to ESEA Conference Committee
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) was one of seven House Democrats chosen today to serve on the conference committee to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also known as No Child Left Behind. ESEA, the nation’s most sweeping K-12 law, has not been updated since 2001. “As the founder of two charter schools, I have seen firsthand the power of innovation and choice to provide better educational opportunities to all families,” Polis said. “When I was the chairman of the Colorado State Board of Education, I witnessed the shortcomings of No Child Left Behind up close as we sought to implement a flawed law, and I’m excited now to have the opportunity to correct those flaws. “I’m honored to have this chance to shape the education system that will serve the next generation of kids. When ESEA was originally passed, it was first and foremost a civil rights law, and it’s critical that this year’s reauthorization maintain that original intent.” In July, the S
Notorious Ski Highway Gets Critical First Step on Road to Relief
An amendment authored by Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) to designate I-70 from Denver to Salt Lake City as a Corridor of High Priority passed the House of Representatives today as part of a major transportation bill that funds the country’s roads, bridges, and highways. With this Congressional designation, I-70 will now be eligible for certain federal funding streams to help with maintenance and improvement 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). “Anyone who has sat in traffic on a Sunday afternoon on I-70 East knows that highway is in need of major imp
