It also allocates over $700 million dollars for highway repairs in the next five years. As implementation of this historic law continues, I was thrilled to welcome … Continue Reading

Remembering Amache, Honoring the American Story

Dear Friends, Bob Fuchigami was just 11 when his family was ordered to leave their home with no explanation of their destination. Our Evergreen neighbor and constituent would go on to spend three years unjustifiably imprisoned at the Amache Incarceration Site in Southeast, Colorado. The internment of Japanese Americans is no doubt one of the darkest scars in our country's history. Coloradans are no strangers to it, as many more of our neighbors have shared stories about their time in Amache … Continue Reading

That's why, this week, the House took a vote to combine … Continue Reading
