Coveted Committee Assignments

Representative Navarro was assigned to two committees for 2015, the Business Affairs and Labor Committee, and the Local Government Committee, same as 2014, and both of which she has a strong passion for. Representative Navarro said, “I’m excited for this upcoming session and the committees I will be serving on, not only do I want my constituency to benefit from this, but also the greater part of Colorado, the other committee members and I have big plans for this upcoming year.” 

House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso (R-Loveland) announced committee assignments for members of the House Republican caucus. "We are fortunate to have so many talented new and returning members in our caucus," said DelGrosso. "Our members' wealth of knowledge and experience from the private sector will be an invaluable contribution to the legislative process and help us achieve a more prosperous Colorado."  

The Business Affairs and Labor Committee that Representative Navarro is on oversees Business, Labor, Economic, and Workforce Development considers matters regarding the regulation of professions and occupations, property and casualty insurance, unemployment insurance, health insurance, workers' compensation insurance, economic development, banks and financial institutions, real estate, labor, and technology, and a number of different economic and labor departments within Colorado.  

The House Local Government Committee represents local governments, special districts, housing, and land use planning. In addition, the committee has legislative oversight responsibility for the Department of Local Affairs.

State Representative Navarro Selected for Bipartisan Trade Mission to China

State Representative Clarice Navarro, a Republican, serving Colorado's 47th House District, is taking part in a bipartisan trade mission to China that includes state and local officials from around the United States.  "Producers in Southern Colorado have some of the finest products available for export, and I view this as an opportunity to encourage exports from Southern Colorado and the entire state", Navarro said.
Navarro went on to state, "I believe we have international opportunities to improve economics in this great state, I am going to be so proud to talk about things like Rocky Ford melons and Pueblo Chiles...and that's just the start.  I'm very proud to represent Southern Colorado at the Capitol, and this is an honor to represent business and industry of Colorado on this mission."
China is one of the United States biggest markets for exports.  This mission is part of an effort by the China United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF).  Allen Wong, Executive Director of CUSEF stated, "CUSEF is honored and privileged to host such a distinguished group of political leaders from the United States to visit China. U.S.-China relations are the most important bilateral relations in the world, and CUSEF is committed to facilitating better understanding of our two peoples. We have great expectations that this delegation, through their personal experience gained from this trip and their respective leadership positions, will make significant contributions toward the betterment of that relationship.”
Members of the delegation also include: Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (R-WI), Senator-Elect Cyrus Habib (D-WA-48), State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY-64), Commissioner Bridget Gainer (D-Cook County-10, IL), Mayor Michael Copeland (R-Olathe, KS) and Treasurer Tishaura Jones (D-St. Louis, MO).

Thankful for a Win

I am so thankful for a win. This isn’t a win so much for me and the team, but this is a win for Colorado. I stand by my core values of less government, less regulations and lower taxes. It’s time to put Colorado back to work, and I’m ready for the fight.

This was a hard fought election on every front, and I congratulate all of the winners. I look forward to working with them as we move Colorado forward in an effort to help struggling families. I’m excited to continue my service to the people of Southern Colorado.

Navarro Calls On Governor to Ensure the Safety and Education of Southern Colorado

October 16, 2014: Statement By Representative Clarice Navarro

The recent news of Ebola reaching the United States is very troublesome and even resulted in the death of a man in Dallas, Texas.  Ebola is a very serious threat to the health of our citizens and with the ability of individuals to travel so easily, it could be only a matter of time until the Ebola virus reaches Colorado.

Constituents throughout Colorado House District 47 (Fremont, Otero, Pueblo) have expressed their concerns to me about a potential outbreak.  The Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) recently stated that the Ebola virus threat is not urgent and that action plans are being discussed.  However, our state needs to prepare for this threat before it becomes widespread.

Southern Colorado deserves the same education and training opportunities that have been given to residents in the Denver area.  This isn’t just an urban threat but a statewide one.  In recent legislative sessions, there has been an urban/rural divide.  This is not the time for political theatre.  It is time to make sure public safety remains one of the top priorities throughout the entire state.

This week I have sent a letter to Governor John Hickenlooper expressing my concerns and the concerns of Southern Colorado.   Southern Colorado deserves a strong voice in the legislature and I will continue to be that strong voice for the people of Southern Colorado.  This is the time for leadership that takes action and does not sit around waiting for tragedy to hit.

Read the letter in a new window.
