Message from Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) re: Global Warming

August 17, 2007

Dear Bret,

Thank you for contacting me about the threat of global warming. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.

Like you I, too, am concerned about the climate changes resulting from global warming. Congress should act to significantly reduce this serious threat to our planet by passing legislation that promotes energy efficiency measures and decreases our dependence on fossil fuels. Congress recently took an important first step by passing the bi-partisan Clean Energy Act of 2007, which increases the level of renewable energy development but there is still more work to do. You can rest assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues to reduce the threat of global warming and increase our commitment to renewable energy technologies.

Once again thanks for writing. I encourage you to continue to contact me about issues that are important to you.

Message from Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) re: Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007

Dear Bret,

Thank you for contacting me about the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.

I believe our citizens deserve to have full confidence that their votes will be counted in our election process. After the events that occurred in the Florida 2000 election, I understand and I am mindful of your concerns that there is a need for a verifiable record source to ensure accuracy in counting the votes. Please rest assured, I am closely reviewing this legislation and will keep your views in mind should it reach the House floor for a vote.

Once again thanks for writing. I encourage you to continue to contact me about issues that are important to you.

Message from Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) re: "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

August 17, 2007

Dear Bret,

Thank you for contacting me about our military's current "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.

Our nation's security at home and abroad must be our highest priority. As it is currently written, the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy has had an effect on our already stretched-thin military during this crucial time. Please rest assured, I am currently reviewing the policy options to address this shortage in our armed forces and will keep your views in mind should a bill pertaining to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy reach the House floor.

I encourage you to continue to contact me about the issues that are important to you. Please visit our website www.perlmutter.house.gov where you can also sign up for my electronic newsletter, and receive periodic updates on my activities as your Representative in Washington.

Message from Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) re: ADA Restoration Act

Dear Bret,

Thank you for contacting me about the Americans with Disabilities Restoration Act. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.

I, too, agree that individuals with chronic illnesses deserve to be protected from discrimination. That is why I am an original cosponsor of the Americans with Disabilities Restoration Act. The ADA has helped ensure that Americans with disabilities no longer live in isolation but rather live as independent, self-sufficient members of our community. I believe it is time for Congress to require the courts to focus on whether a person has experienced discrimination "on the basis of disability" rather than requiring individuals with disabilities to first show they are substantially limited in some major life activity. It is in our nation's best interest to adhere to a consistent, unambiguous and enforceable law when addressing issues of discrimination for persons with medical conditions such as epilepsy and diabetes.

I encourage you to continue to contact me about the issues that are important to you. Please visit our website www.perlmutter.house.gov where you can also sign up for my electronic newsletter and receive periodic updates on my activities as your Representative in Washington.
