Rep. McNulty reviews several bills in the state Legislature including one that increases the minimum prison sentence for child molesters preying on children 14 and younger, as well as a bill improving law enforcement tools to catch predators using the Internet to lure children for sexual purposes. The last bill extends to include text messaging so law enforcement may intervene before children are bodily at risk. McNulty also discusses water and energy concerns. Sen. Nancy Spence discusses SB5, which increases fees on DUI and other traffic offenses which go to the Traumatic Brain Injury Trust Fund, which provides grants for treatment of people whose insurance or poverty prevent this necessary help. Spence notes the blast TBI is now added, and explains how the program picks up when veterans are denied help for TBI. Rep. Cory Gardner discusses his bill to include text messaging as described above. Sen. Morgan Carroll talks of her bills to obstruct unfair claims practices in improperly denying claims.

Nancy Ulrich, co-president of the Denver League of Women Voters and longtime public access tv supporter, hosts this LIVE unscripted hour-long talk show at 4 pm Fridays on Channel 56 or www.denveropenmedia.org/project/6456/shows.
Many legislators find the face-time with the public here, or the opportunity to explain their legislative efforts in greater detail than just a soundbite.
And occasionally other groups, focused on healthcare or mental health issues, youth poetry, new businesses like workshops and special sauces, find an audience with Nancy.
The Denver League of Women Voters honored Nancy Ulrich with its annual Suffragist Award in 2009, its highest honor for work helping others.
