Pastors and other religious leaders are invited to sign letter to Congress to limit liability to religious organizations.

First Liberty Institute (https://firstliberty.org), a legal defense group who is committed to defending our Constitutionally guaranteed religious freedoms is working at the national level to protect our freedoms for churches and other religious organizations.

Toward that end they are asking pastors and other religious leaders to join them in signing a letter to be delivered to members of Congress later this week. First Liberty Institute describes the letter as follows: “We’re concerned that we may have some who threaten lawsuits against churches after they resume in-person church services.  So, the letter is designed to encourage Congress to consider protections in any upcoming relief legislation.  As we say in the letter:

“To avoid these unintended consequences, we propose that Congress include in the next CARES Act legislation immunity for religious organizations from negligence suits resulting from their serving the public or reopening in accordance with local orders. Such protection could be modeled generally after the COVID-19 laws and orders that limit liability for medical professionals and commercial entities that manufacture and sell protective equipment by establishing a gross negligence or willful misconduct standard. This simple, common sense solution will provide religious organizations desperately needed protection from simple negligence lawsuits.”

The letter can be reviewed by clicking on this link: FLI COVID-19 Guidelines Liability Letter.

Please consider this and pass it on to others.

The link provided by First Liberty for pastors and other religious leaders to sign the letter may be found by clicking here.

PERA reform
SB-200, was introduced in the Colorado Senate by Senator Jack Tate on March 7. The fund is projected to be $30-80 billion short of the money needed to meet its obligations over the long term. The bill, which has bipartisan support, makes many changes, but probably not enough to actually make PERA fully funded.

SB-200, was introduced in the Colorado Senate by Senator Jack Tate on March 7. The fund is projected to be $30-80 billion short of the money needed to meet its obligations over the long term.

The bill, which has bipartisan support, makes many changes, but probably not enough to actually make PERA fully funded. Changes include increasing the age of retirement, limiting the cost of living increases, increasing the number of years used to calculate actual benefits, and increasing the contributions from employees and employers. Probably the most controversial change is opening up the opportunity for employees to take a defined contribution plan rather than the defined benefit plan.

The bill has a long way to go to become law, and many changes are expected, so it is still too early to know how far SB-200 will go to reform the deficiencies of the current Public Employee Retirement Association in Colorado.

Kevin Lundberg is making a “Whistle Stop” tour of all 10 counties in the newly formed 2nd Congressional District. As a capstone to the well over 250 campaign events he has held in the past few months, this tour will be a final opportunity for many voters to meet with Senator Lundberg before the November 6 election .

“It has been a deep honor to work with thousands of people across this district who are committed to put limited, constitutional government back into Washington,” Lundberg said. “With no big dollars coming from Washington or any other big special interest groups, our army of volunteers has truly made this work a huge grass roots campaign. We are not taking one single vote for granted.”

His tour will start in Silverthorne on Friday, October 19, at 6:00 p.m. at The Mint Steakhouse on Blue River Parkway. A large rally will be held at the Old Fairgrounds Park on S. Railroad Ave in Loveland on Saturday, October 20, at 3:00 p.m. The tour continues on through Eagle, Grand, Park, Jefferson, Clear Creek, Gilpin, Boulder and Broomfield Counties, in that order. For details go to the calendar page of this website.

Lundberg is “On the Radar” with the NRCC
Washington --- The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced Kevin Lundberg as an ‘On the Radar’ candidate, the important second step in the ‘Young Guns’ program.

Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the ‘Young Guns’ program is a Member-driven effort that is the primary method for recruiting strong candidates for both open-seat and incumbent challenge elections.

Washington — The National Republican Congressional Committee today announced Kevin Lundberg as an ‘On the Radar’ candidate, the important second step in the ‘Young Guns’ program. Founded during the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the ‘Young Guns’ program is a Member-driven effort that is the primary method for recruiting strong candidates for both open-seat and incumbent challenge elections. Lundberg is running for Colorado’s Second Congressional District.

“We are looking forward to working with Kevin Lundberg, who has already proven himself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the ‘Young Guns’ program that will position his campaign for victory,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Kevin Lundberg’s dedication and experience positions him to advocate for pro-growth policies and fight the failed Democrat status quo in Washington. This will stand in stark contrast to the Democrats’ record of spending, borrowing and taxing that Colorado families know has failed.”

The ‘Young Guns’ program encourages candidates who have proven their ability to meet crucial campaign benchmarks to develop their campaigns further in order to achieve victory on Election Day. In achieving ‘On the Radar’ status, Lundberg has met the second set of these organizational and fundraising benchmarks and has already begun to establish himself as a strong contender.

A proud Colorado native, Kevin Lundberg’s family has lived in Colorado since his grandparents settled there more than 100 years ago. Lundberg has owned and operated a media and video production service for the past 31 years and served in the Colorado House and Senate. A passion for community service, he served on the Board of Trustees for Colorado Christian University, helped to found the Christian Home Educators of Colorado, and assists in teaching at the Galilee Church. Lundberg is committed to creating jobs, balancing the budget, and representing the Second District as a conservative voice in Washington.

9/11 Embassy Attacks
Senator Kevin Lundberg deeply regrets the death of American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, and prays for their families and their colleagues who heroically represent America in diplomatic and military service around the world.

Senator Kevin Lundberg deeply regrets the death of American diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, and prays for their families and their colleagues who heroically represent America in diplomatic and military service around the world.
 
“What we have seen during our solemn commemorations of 9/11, and our prayers for international peace, is yet another round of deadly attacks by Islamic militants.  The attacks on US embassies are tantamount to direct attacks against US soil, and the assassination of a personal representative of the President of the United States.” said Lundberg.   
 
“These attacks appear to be premeditated and motivated by state-sponsored terrorists connected with the international Muslim Brotherhood and/or Al Qaida, who will falsely create any cover story they can to justify their acts of war and violations of international law.  We should not lend any credence to the idea that an unknown film clip is the actual cause of terrorism.  That seems to be a clear distraction away from ongoing militant Islamic actions to wage hostilities against US interests.”
 
“So far, President Obama has failed to react to the attack on the US Embassy in Cairo that suggests well-coordinated planning for political attacks against the United States.” Lundberg also noted:  “At the same time, the President has snubbed face-to-face meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, apparently wanting to wait until after the elections to deal with the expansion of militant Islam in Egypt and the construction of nuclear weapons in Iran.  Indeed, after supporting Arab Spring uprisings that vaulted the Muslim Brotherhood into power, it remains unclear whether President Obama will fully support Israel as an ally, will act to prevent draconian sequestration of funding to our own military during a time of international crisis, or will recognize our national debt as one of the greatest threats to our national security.”

9/11
This is the date on the calendar which our generation will never forget. It has now been eleven years, but it seems like yesterday, for the threats that became harsh reality on that day are in many ways still with us.

This is the date on the calendar which our generation will never forget. It has now been eleven years, but it seems like yesterday, for the threats that became harsh reality on that day are in many ways still with us.

On September 12, 2001 I wrote a letter to the editor for my local paper. As we give honor to the first responders who became the heroes, remember all who lost their lives, and continue to deal with the results of those violent attacks, I believe it fitting to review the full text of my words written eleven years ago:

“The recent terrorist attacks are senseless acts of cruelty which demand a swift and decisive response. I applaud the president for his calm courage and determination to cure this great wrong with appropriate justice. Yet despite all the best efforts to defend this great land and its free people, we should never be confident in our own strength.

“As I helplessly watched this catastrophe unfold on my television it reminded me how fragile life is, and how vulnerable we all are in today’s uncertain world. Many similar scenarios of destruction can be imagined and we all know there are far too many people who would willingly be the agents of such despicable acts. On September 11, we saw that chilling reality. These shocking events underscore the very significant spiritual dimension to all of life, including that which concerns our country as a whole and its public policies. At this time we should reaffirm our hope and confidence in the Creator of all, because it is only through God’s protective grace that life is even possible.

“Let us pray as a country. Pray for those directly impacted by this tragedy. Pray for peace in our land. Trusting alone in our human systems and security measures will always prove to be a false hope. We must be diligently doing what we can, from our human perspective, but also we must intentionally seek God’s forgiveness for past failures and seek His mercy and protection for the future. Only then can we build that strong foundation of which president Bush spoke. Only then can we as a nation truly be prosperous for our children and grandchildren in this challenging world of the twenty first century.”

-Kevin Lundberg, 9/12/01

$43,000,000 Health Care Exchange Grant Approved Without Vote

Even as the campaign gears up to full force, my duties as a state senator continue. This week a committee I serve on had the opportunity to stop the implementation of Colorado’s health care exchange.

Unfortunately the effort failed. Establishment politics over-ruled sound public policy. In a very direct way, this is why I am running for Congress.  

I published the following statement after the committee vote was eliminated by the chair and vice-chair of the committee:

“I am deeply disappointed that the legislative review committee was not given the opportunity to vote on a $43 million federal grant proposal for Colorado’s health exchange.

“This committee, of which I am a member, has the statutory responsibility to review all grant proposals. The chair and vice-chair do have the authority to approve proposals without a committee vote, but that was surely never intended to give them a pocket veto for tough questions. Their prerogative to circumvent the committee should only have been used for proposals that are not controversial. If a grant proposal did require the scrutiny and vote of the legislative oversight committee, such as this $43 million grant, the committee should have voted.

I will not back down from the tough issues, or the tough votes. That is why I am running for Congress. We need leadership willing to say no to programs that grow government and take away more and more of our freedoms. The Colorado health care exchange, which I voted against last year, will implement Obamacare. Had I been given the opportunity,  I would have voted against this grant proposal, which could have stopped the implementation of the exchange. When I am given the opportunity to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will vote to repeal Obamacare.”

We cannot count on the establishment to win this race. We need your help right now. Please go to our website; www.Lundberg2012.com. Contribute financially, join the neighbor to neighbor calling team, work in our Loveland headquarters, distribute signs, all efforts are essential for victory in November.
