Saine responds to Polis press conference

DENVER—Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis held a press conference Monday preparing the public for the end of his stay-home order come April 26. “We need to figure out how to run the marathon now that we’ve run the sprint,” Polis said, per The Colorado Sun. Detailed guidance on how Colorado will begin opening up is expected to be further detailed in the coming days. The governor’s staff explained per The Colorado Sun that his initial preview of what things will look like moving forward could change. The governor has eased up on restrictions to give counties more authority to develop their own plans to opening up Colorado.

Colorado House Republican Caucus Chair Lori Saine, of Firestone, released the following statement in response to a press conference held Monday by Gov. Jared Polis:

“Coloradans have been pushing back on the extreme restrictions and it is working. We need to open up Colorado and the governor is taking good steps to giving businesses and counties more autonomy in saving both lives and livelihoods.”

Saine worked with fellow members of the Colorado Legislature’s Rural Caucus yesterday and sent the governor a letter this morning. The letter was also quickly followed by the Colorado House Republicans.

Saine added:

“Both the Rural Caucus and the House Republican Caucus letters made a strong case for opening up Colorado again and we are pleased to see that our leadership is making an impact with the executive branch.”
