|Colorado Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Legal Services|
|• State, Veterans, and Military Affairs|
Foote's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Jobs & Economy
- Excerpt: "Our first priority should be getting people back to work and creating sustainable jobs in this state. Many of our other challenges – budget pressures, education funding, the stretching of the social safety net – stem from our high unemployment."
- Our Environment
- Excerpt: "Hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”): oil and gas companies should not be allowed to pursue hydraulic fracturing in our neighborhoods until they prove it is safe. There are many valid concerns about water and other environmental damage that must be adequately addressed. At the same time, at the state legislature I will work to strengthen statewide regulations, inspections, and enforcement and push for more local control over drilling operations."
- Our Democracy
- Excerpt: "Our campaign finance system is out of control. Statewide candidates must raise millions of dollars to be competitive. Remarkably, the Supreme Court has indicated that money is the same as speech and corporations are the same as people. "
- Excerpt: "We must make sure our children receive a high quality education. By any measure, our K-12 and higher education systems are severely underfunded. While the level of state funding is not the only factor determining school success, undoubtedly it does not help when school budgets are significantly cut year after year."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
