State Senator Matt Jones weighs in on US 36 and highway privatization - meetings tonight and tomorrow night

via email
Dear Mr. Trumbule, 

Last week, I led a group of 14 legislators representing areas along US-36 asking for a 60 day review period. We should know what is in the deal and it should not be secret.
I strongly support transparency and think a 60 day review period should be granted, so the public and legislators can be informed and have an opportunity to comment on the agreement. This is especially true since the contract is said to have been signed this last summer and the final closing documents are said to be soon signed.
Going forward I believe we should require legislative approval and public involvement opportunities before contracts are agreed to and signed.

I also wanted to let you know that there are two public meetings, hosted by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), scheduled for tonight and tomorrow regarding this issue. I encourage you to attend and make your voice heard. The information for the meetings are listed below.
My Best,
State Senator Matt Jones
