Summer vacation for teens should be a time of fun and relaxation, summer camps and first jobs, volunteering and exploring. Unfortunately, for some, unsupervised time leads to alcohol and drug use.

Update on Felony DUI Law for Colorado
Thank you for your support. Your voice was heard by many at the State Capitol. Several of our State Senators and Representatives told me that they had received your emails and phone calls. As you are probably aware by now, however, the Senate Appropriations committee voted 4-3 to kill House Bill 1036 Felony DUI for Repeat Offenders. This means that the felony DUI bill is finished for this year.
While this outcome is disappointing and frustrating, I couldn't be prouder of the work that our supporters put in to try to make this bill happen.
Thanks to you, Colorado came closer than it ever has to passing a bill to create a felony charge to hold accountable multiple-time DUI offenders.
It was a tough day after a good fight. And, we will be back next year to pass this bill so that Colorado is no longer one of only four states without a felony DUI law.
In the coming months, we will begin planning for the 2015 legislative session. If you would be interested in working on legislative issues in the future, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
Thank you again for your passion and dedication to help make Colorado safer.
