Proponents of Proposition 106, legalizing doctor-assisted suicide, claim the law has worked well in Oregon and other states. It’s simply not true. If proponents told the truth, Proposition 106 would go down in flames. Here’s the truth, legalizing doctor-assisted suicide opens the door for insurance companies and the government to get involved with everyone’s end-of-life decisions.

We probably all remember the old saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Well, the same holds true in the political world, where seemingly innocuous groups, purporting to represent “non-partisan” causes, actually act as fronts for partisan agendas by misleading the public about their motives. One good example of this is a group called Conservation Colorado (ConCo), which is attacking me, using out-of-state money, as part of a Democrat push to retake control of the State Senate and restore one-party-rule in Colorado ...

Already dealing with parched conditions, the U.S. Southwest faces the threat of megadroughts this century as temperatures rise, says a new study that found the risk is reduced if heat-trapping gases are curbed. Oppressive dry spells lasting at least two decades have gripped the Southwest before, but scientists said future megadroughts would be hotter and more severe, putting a strain on water resources. The study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, is the latest to find that droughts more extreme than what is currently being experienced could become more common as the planet warms.

If we ran the state of Colorado like Puerto Rico’s politicians have run that U.S. territory’s government for the last decade, we would have had to close up shop a long time ago. As a member of the Colorado House of Representatives, balancing our state budget on a yearly basis, and responsibly spending the taxpayers’ money is not only of critical importance but also a constitutional requirement. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Puerto Rico, and the territory’s ruling class has great political connections. Instead of having to face the music, they’re probably going to get help from their friends in Washington, D.C.

Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona wants out of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Along with allies such as U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake and former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, both of Arizona, Ducey wants federal appeals in the state to wind up somewhere other than the San Francisco courthouse that currently receives them. One of the likely landing spots is the 10th Circuit. If you only vaguely understand the structure of the byzantine federal appellate system, you are ahead of the curve. If you are familiar with their idiosyncrasies, you are either a lawyer or a post-trial party to a lawsuit.
