Script for calling/emailing

[personalize with your own words whenever possible]:

“Hello, my name is [Your Name], and I'm your constituent calling from [Your Location]. I am calling today to express my support for the Local Government Authority to Regulate Pesticides Bill HB24-1178. Expanded local control would allow communities to protect water sources, create buffer zones to protect natural resources, and increase protections for vulnerable populations such as children.

[Optional] Share a brief personal story or connection to the issue if you have one.

I believe that my community should have the option to adopt local ordinances that could protect unique resources and community health. Under current state law, this is not possible. I urge [Name of Legislator/Local Official] to support the Local Government Authority to Regulate Pesticides bill and to bring the bill to the House Floor for a vote.

Please ensure that Colorado's diverse landscapes and communities are supported by giving municipalities limited local control to decide what's best for them.”
