The Colorado GOP today is officially calling on Governor Polis to activate and utilize all branches of our government to collaborate and make critical decisions instead of ruling by Executive Order.
Late last night, without consulting the legislature, Governor Polis signed an executive order allocating over $1.6 billion in federal COVID-19 relief funds.
That is clearly a decision that the state legislature and "chief budgeting body of the state" should have been involved with.
Even Governor Polis has previously acknowledged that the "legislature has the power of the purse" yet, is now deciding he alone is the most qualified to make billion dollar unilateral decisions. The Colorado Republican Party disagrees.
Sign the official petition today calling on Governor Polis to work in partnership with the Colorado legislature instead of ruling by Executive Order.
