Representative Joe Neguse has distinguished himself in the House of Representatives. He serves as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, House Natural Resources Committee and the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.
Rep. Neguse was elected by his colleagues to serve as Co-Freshman Representative to Leadership in the 116th Congress, and in that capacity serves as a member of the House Democratic Leadership Team. He also serves as one of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Vice Chairs and Liaison to New Members.
Rep. Neguse has introduced over 30 pieces of legislation—the most of any freshman lawmaker. These bills focus on the priorities of his constituents: expanding affordable housing opportunities, combatting the existential threat of climate change, and lowering the cost of prescription drugs and surprise medical bills. He has also sponsored legislation to address the online COVID-19 crisis and its fallout, including H.R. 6722: Food for Families in Crisis Act of 2020 and H.R. 6641: To establish the Commission on the Strategic National Stockpile, and for other purposes.
In October, Congressman Neguse passed major Colorado wilderness legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy Act, led by Senator Michael Bennet in the Senate, will preserve approximately 400,000 acres of public land across Colorado and designate the first-ever National Historic Landscape at Camp Hale to honor the storied legacy of the Army’s 10th Mountain Division.
Four of Congressman Neguse’s bills were signed into law by the President, including legislation to fund rural schools in Colorado’s mountain communities, legislation to protect wildlife in the Platte River Basin, a provision to ensure water access for the town of Minturn at the Bolts Ditch Headgate in Eagle County and a provision that incorporates approximately 124 acres adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park into Arapaho National Forest.

IndivisibleNOCO endorses Diane Mitsch Bush to represent Colorado District 3 in the U.S. House of Representatives. CCongressional District 3 represents an excellent opportunity for the Democrats to increase their majority in the House of Representatives. Incumbent Scott Tipton lost his primary to her opponent, who has no qualifications other than an unwavering loyalty to Trump and a penchant for conspiracy theories. The Democratic candidate, Diane Mitsch Bush, has held office in counties where Democrats are the minority party and has established herself as a practical and pragmatic problem solver. She is ready to fight for real changes to lower health care costs, create good-paying jobs, and protect our public lands. Colorado needs more representatives who will work on solutions to the major challenges facing us. Find out more about Diane Mitsch Bush on IndivisibleNOCO's fact sheet. Let's help get Diane Mitsch Bush elected!
“I decided to run for Congress because I want to help people in CD 3, and I’ll work with anyone — no matter their political party — to get things done for this district. I’m ready to fight for lower health care costs, good paying jobs, and our public lands in Washington.”
Colorado deserves better Congressional representation than Ken “Kill ‘em all, let God sort ‘em out” Buck, so IndivisibleNOCO is endorsing Ike McCorkle to replace Ken Buck in representing Colorado in the U.S. House of Representatives. Ike has a progressive, yet pragmatic platform and is committed to working on behalf of his diverse constituency in CD-4. An unapologetic environmentalist, he believes scientists who say we need to be concerned about climate change. Ike is a retired U.S. Marine and a Purple Heart recipient and he wants to provide the best quality care to those who have put their lives on the line to defend us. Check out his website and see why IndivisibleNOCO is so impressed with Isaac "Ike" McCorkle!
"I am a retired Marine and Purple Heart recipient. I am a father of three and not a politician who accepts corporate bribes better known as PAC contributions. I am much more concerned with serving the will and needs of my constituents and the security of my nation than I am in divisive rhetoric and lining the pockets of the rich and powerful."
