Attacking the 1st Amendment...
Cyberbullying bill endangers free speech
On March 12, the Colorado House passed House Bill 1131, on “cyberbullying of a minor.” While undoubtedly well-intended, the bill as written is an unconstitutional restriction on protected speech, and should be swiftly dispatched by the Colorado Senate. Eugene Volokh and Mike Krause explore the pitfalls of this dangerous piece of legislation in this Complete Colorado Page 2 op-ed.
Colorado's health exchanges...
No Audit Yet
What are they scared of? The Colorado health exchanges we have thanks to Obamacare will not be audited... for now. Why not? Because Colorado's Senate Democrats are blocking an audit. Taxpayers should be outraged, says Joshua Sharf in this Complete Colorado Page 2 op-ed.
Reaching the Hispanic Community...
