Issues

Wildfire relief

Cadman, along with State Senate President Morgan Carroll, supported an aerial firefighting fleet that would contain Colorado wildfires within an hour of being spotted, a proposal that cost roughly $20 million. A report from the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control declared that the fleet would save the state money as well as protect homes and lives from wildfires. "It’s not just a win for Colorado for our security," Cadman said in an interview. "It’s a win for the 44 million people who drink water that starts with snowflakes in Colorado." The fleet was funded by a rebounding economy that put more money in the state's 2015 budget.[1]

Jerry's kids bill

Jeanne Nicholson sponsored a bill in the 2011 session to give right of way throughout Colorado to police officers and firefighters who approach passing motorists for Jerry's Kids on Labor Day weekend.

Senate bill 270, approved by the Senate Local Government Committee, clarifies when and where public-safety personnel, such as firefighters, can solicit funds from motorists. Local governments would be required to approve permit applications submitted by firefighters to do their fundraising on roadways.

Nicholson contends her bill is really about public safety.

“As long as we can say when and where—this bill protects firefighters and others by law,” said Nicholson. “Because they are professionals, they are aware of the public-safety of the situation.”

The measure overrules local laws and authority in this matter.

Sen. Ellen Roberts said passage of the proposed measure would “open a Pandora’s Box.” Sen. Irene Aguilar, who is also concerned, said she would support SB270 for the time being but would seek additional input.

“I am voting yes because I came in here today saying I would but will need to talk more with (legislative staff),” said Aguilar.

Sen. Bill Cadman opposed the bill and said the measure raised a question of local control—and a constitutional one.

“(SB-270) is a total usurpation of local control. It tries to carve out an exemption from local laws, for a specific group, raising serious constitutional issues,” said Cadman. “It’s a good public service but bad public policy…the ends don’t justify the means.”[2]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Colorado

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Colorado scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
