  • HB 09-1098 - Streamline Clean Coal PUC Envtl Req
  • HB 09-1146 - Proof Of Citizenship To Register To Vote
  • HB 09-1157 - Makes BZP A Schedule I Narcotic

For details and a full listing of sponsored bills, see the House site.

Colorado Senate Bill 57

As a member of the Colorado House Education Committee, Baumgardner voted in support of Colorado Senate Bill 57, also known as the Public School Financial Transparency Act, a bill to create transparency in state education expenditures.

Arizona Senate Bill 1070

Baumgardner was one of seven members of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado to travel to Arizona to study the drafting and implementation of Arizona Senate Bill 1070, a controversial law regarding the enforcement of illegal immigration. [4]

Amendment R

Amendment R, or House Concurrent Resolution 1005, raises the issue that the administrative costs for collecting taxes on sub-$6000/year grazing fees are often more than the taxes that would be collected. Baumgardner sponsored this resolution.

"We went for the smaller end ($6,000 or less)," said Baumgardner noting that the counties will still receive revenue from leases that are above the $6,000 threshold.

Baumgardner said that the issue of the tax was initially brought up by constituents who felt they were being unfairly taxed.

"The folks that were leasing the federal lands were saying they didn’t feel they should be paying tax on land they didn’t own," said Baumgardner.[5]

Tardy vehicle registration fees

Baumgardner wants to reduce a recent increase in late fees for tardy vehicle registration and John Hickenlooper says if the bill passes, the lost revenue would have to be offset elsewhere in the budget.

In 2008, the Democratically controlled legislature passed a bill (Senate Bill 09-108 or FASTER), which Gov. Bill Ritter signed into law. FASTER tacked on a $41 fee on average onto vehicle registrations and imposed an additional $25 late fee per month up to $100 for those people who failed to renew their tags before the expiration date.

Baumgardner says it’s the increased late fee that really has people irritated and he will introduce a bill to roll it back. Baumgardner’s proposed legislation would reset the state’s late fee to a flat, $10 penalty that is applied at the discretion of each county, as was the case statewide prior to FASTER.

“When they go to register their vehicles that have sat idle, they are slapped with a $100 surcharge, per vehicle, in addition to the increased fee that applies to all registrations across the board,” said Baumgardner.

Hickenlooper said it’s up to the legislature to decide whether or not to tinker with the fee, but something still has to be done about failing bridges since FASTER dollars go toward repairs.

“I don’t want to step on their (the legislature’s) toes—that’s their decision,” said Hickenlooper. “FASTER did not solve the problem, it was a Band-aid.”[6]

Political courage tests

Baumgardner did not provide answers to the Colorado State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected.[7]

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.
