Democratic Presidential Challenger (withdrew, Aug. 2019); CO Governor
TWO CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Amy Klobuchar; Beto O`Rourke.
Virtually all other candidates $1.5 trillion attempt to respond to climate change, much of which appears focused on research. Beyond that the specifics get nebulous, other than a line saying he wants some of it to go to grants that "cut commutes, crashes and carbon pollution," including increased access to transit options. Read more about his plan here.
John Hickenlooper has said he wants a $1 trillion infrastructure investment with a focus on clean energy and rural broadband.
Q: Would you restore Obama-era climate change regulations that the Trump administration has reversed, like the Clean Power Plan, methane limits and vehicle emissions standards?
Q: Do you support new regulations to cut greenhouse gas emissions beyond what was in place under President Obama?
Q: Do you support a national renewable energy standard? If so, what would it be? If not, why not?
Q: Do you support increasing federal funding for clean-energy research? If so, how much money? Are there specific areas of research you're most interested in funding, and why?
Hickenlooper: Yes. Next-generation clean energy technologies; public-private partnerships.
We are leveraging federal dollars, state assets and our new telecom law to ensure that all Colorado households, businesses, hospitals and schools--regardless of their location--have access to reliable, affordable broadband.
Two years ago, Colorado was caught in a bygone era with rules and procedures that made more sense back when we used electric
COIN gives us a unique opportunity to incubate entrepreneurship and facilitate the transfer of new ideas to the marketplace. While COIN is privately funded, we are asking for a modest public investment to continue the success we had with Arrow and GE. We are requesting $6 million to support the work of the Colorado Economic Development Commission, and $3 million for a revolving loan fund to provide low-risk gap financing so Colorado can compete with other states for film, video gaming and electronic media productions. These investments will repay the state many, many times over.
