You have governor distintas or governor Abbott, For instance, on one end of the spectrum governors who have in fact mandated against even mask mandates and their states and on the other side, you have Governor Spencer Cox of Utah, for example, who has said that he believes vaccines on the way out of this pandemic. He wants everyone to get the vaccine but believes that this order is unlawful. It'll be interesting to see if they can really Uh, join that challenge together and agree on the language and the lawsuit or if there in fact going to be a lot of different challenges to it, Sarah, you have a legal background.

Finally so we could have up to 18 Plus Republicans voting Yes, at 11 A.m. Today in Washington, D. C, including Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader. What makes it all the more impressive is that Donald Trump has repeatedly said that Republicans need to vote against this bill. It gives Joe Biden a win that he didn't get. And he wants them to vote. No. And you have 18 plus Republicans, basically ignoring the former president, which is a an interesting break within the Republican Party. At the same time. Once this bill passes the Senate, it will go to the house where Speaker Pelosi has said She's not going to bring it up for a vote because she wants to see the $3.5 trillion spending deal. Get voted on first. So the bite administration, you know, it's one step forward two steps back.

"Morning news, The MLB All Star Week continues in Denver. It culminates with the Midsummer Classic later on this evening. Major League Baseball moving the game out of Atlanta because of Georgia's new, controversial voting lives. But there is a debate over whether their lives are too dissimilar than that of Colorado's. Colorado does have a national reputation when it comes to voting. Right now we're visiting with Secretary of State Jena Griswold and Madam Secretary. Thanks for joining this morning. We know why the All Star game was moved to Colorado from Georgia. Some have said that George is voting laws are no different than Colorado's. Your answer to that would be my answer would be that's ridiculous. It is ridiculous to compare Colorado Gold Standard voter model to Georgia's especially now new voter suppression election model. The kid differences in Colorado. We mail a ballot to all active registered voters. Every election in Georgia does not, um, so that means that our average wait time. If you go vote in person is seven minutes across the state three minutes in the Denver Metro. In Georgia before they passed their new package to make it harder to vote. They already saw lines over eight hours long. Um there's other major differences. You know, they have one drop box for 100,000 people. We have one dropbox, part 9200 people. I'm along with many other differences, but at the end of the day, we have one of the most acceptable election systems in the nation, and the results speak for themselves. We have the highest percentage of eligible people registered and just were second in the nation and turn out in the 2020 general election. I looks like Texas is another state that could see more restrictive voting laws. 17 states have recently passed more restrictive voting laws. I think you would agree that you are looking for sanctity and security with the vote. Is there any grounder nuanced or justification with any of these changes with any of these states, at least in your view? Well, what we are seeing is on the heels of the most secure election in American history, which was the 2020 general election. That also had record turnout among both Democrats and Republicans, a move by elected officials who just didn't like the outcome to now try to tilt future elections in their favor by suppressing the vote. So we've actually seen over 400 bills in 47 states to make it harder to vote. We've seen a call for fake audits to undermine confidence stripping of authority from secretaries of state whole host of things to really make it harder for the American people to vote. But what I would say is look at our election model. Uh, we are beacon for both security and access. Like I said, we have one of the highest turnout rates in the nation but were also considered the most secure. One of the key reasons for that is the use of mail ballot and make it more accessible for Colorado's too easily vote their ballots and return it. But they actually increase our cybersecurity posture because Russia a bad actor just can't half a paper ballot. Do you have any date at all? That shows any kind of voter fraud here in Colorado? That would give you any concerns? So here in Colorado, we vote on a piece of paper. Their mail ballot is a piece of paper. If you vote in person, even if you want you Is a piece of voting equipment. You're actually given a piece of paper that you can review that's what gets counted. Um and none of our voting equipment is connected to the Internet. And just to really make sure everything went as well as it can be. We do something at the end of the election called a risk limiting audit that shows us to a high statistical degree of certainty. Teak. That the election results were correct. We would find any any problem if there was any problem. Um, and answer the second question. No, we did not see any widespread voter fraud in the state of Colorado. We have guardrails set up to make sure that we catch any bad actors, and the election went incredibly well in 2020. We were in the middle of the pandemic. There was not vaccinations yet. And even in the midst of that more Colorado's cast a ballot than ever before, in any election in state history. Our election model works Secretary of State Jena Griswold. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you.

If you have partaken or will partake in any of the events and activities in Denver surrounding the Major League Baseball All Star Week in Austria game, you can respond and interact with us on Twitter.

"The I Heart radio app. Welcome back to our special holiday edition of Colorado's Morning News on K Away NewsRadio, April and Marty here now that we're fully into summer and coming out of the pandemic, it's still yet to be seen Just how much the past 16 months will affect our work lives moving forward. A new survey shows new college grads expect the pandemic setback their careers by at least six months. Perhaps this would be a good time for those young people to pause and collect experiences that will strengthen their career. Prospects down the road. You get into it with education expert Ravi Hottie Sing He wrote. Pivot empowering students today to succeed in an unpredictable Tomorrow, Robbie. Good Morning. Good morning. Thank you for having me glad that you've joined us. It's definitely been a year that has forced us to be, I guess more flexible. But what does it mean for? I guess, a college grad who wants to jump into the world. Force and work world right away. Last year, 2020. The graduates graduated into a pandemic, You know, really big unknown. Everything was headed in the wrong direction as far as their prospects were concerned, and for many of them, it was kind of wait and see prospects and things are better now, though, for the 2021 graduates. I mean, they're graduating into what appears at least for the moment to be an improving economy and Labour market that's opening up so things are looking brighter for them. Except for one thing, which is that, instead of just competing with their fellow 2021 graduates are also competing with their twenties went with the 2020 graduates for jobs makes sense, because a year ago the job market isn't where it is today. Do you think employers think less of a student who graduated during the pandemic whether it be last year or this year? Because they feel like maybe some other education just isn't where it needs to be. You know, I hope not. It's an interesting point, but I doubt it. I think the radio market they need qualified employees and, you know, frankly, uh, so much comes down to how perspective Canada presents themselves in an interview, and you know today, what separates one candidate from another is not what the piece of paper says. But really what those soft skills are them and their ability to communicate and carry on. Opera conversations and present themselves in a way that inspires confidence and shows that they're ready to work as a team because lots of people are coming with the degree and they're graduating. And you know that's that academic education that everybody has. But it's that cultural education that really separates one person from the next. I'm going to take a little bit of a tangent with that, then because we've been forced at least up until recently, to kind of have to do things via the Web via technology are some of those soft skills lost because you don't have that interpersonal interaction is that become Of a barrier or maybe, uh, lost skill with some of this generation, you know that. I think there's two sides of that coin. One is yes, Some of it's been lost, because, uh, so much of those soft skill. Are developed in a classroom environment where people can collaborate where they're forced to interact with others. And and you learned the important things like empathy and cultural competence and those types of things. But on the flip side of that, what I think has happened is that the students that have not been able to go to school and I've been learning from home are craving that interaction that they didn't have their wanting to go back to school. They're wanting to Have that interaction. And so I think the desire for it is going to over compensate or appropriately compensate for what was lacking. And when we switch to the technology, we should mention you served as cultural diplomat for the U. S State Department. So you know what you're talking about creating programs in schools that bridge cultural divides. Our schools in general doing with that. Do you think? Well, you know, it's interesting. One of the you know, I had the opportunity to create these programs and in Russia and China, Iraq, Lebanon. Working on wanted Chile now and you know, a lot of that is done through music. But another program that I have is called Robbie Unite schools, which is bringing together classrooms from one side of the world to another. And letting the kids just communicate and realize that they have more in common than they have differences. And I think what's so beneficial about the pandemic and the, um, fact that education had the pivot to a technology platform is that now teachers and Students and classrooms in general are just more, uh, inclined to do these types of things. They have that ability to do it and you can have a visiting professor now from Russia, coming, uh, talk to students in Middle America, and they don't even have to get on an airplane. So I think there's a lot of opportunity here for education to capitalize. On technology for the sake of creating global citizens, you know, almost daily in our newscasts, and if not daily, maybe every other day. We continue to talk about the labor market, the job market that there are jobs that exist. But not workers to fill them, whatever the reasons can be, and when we've talked about and discussed those reasons is that our disconnect, though right now with with jobs and probably depends on the industry, but and with those employment gaps in our students, are they able to maybe fill those gaps or they hesitant to take those jobs? Well, you know, I think that gap has been growing despite the pandemic come, and that's because of artificial intelligence and The impact that technology is having on the various types of jobs and skills that are needed. So this is as a keynote speaker in education. This is something that I focus on helping education leadership. Prepare kids for an unpredictable future, which is really what my new book pivot is about empowering students today to keep an unpredictable tomorrow, So I think that that has just been accelerated due to the pandemic, and that's why I really see this as an opportunity. You know, to prepare students because we have been faced with something that really was for all intensive purposes unpredictable and we weren't necessarily prepared for it, But we adapted to it, so I think that Gives me hope and some optimism that we can prepare our students to have that skill, the skill to pivot because for me, the most important skill I think in life is to be able to pivot and to be able to adapt. In order to do that. We have to create lifelong learners and in order to create like one learners school has one job to do, which is to teach. Every student had to learn. So they can perpetually learned throughout their life. Getting that first job, though. I think I don't want to do one of those back in my day, but we we would have taken anything right to get paid. Get a paycheck. Just start out. I feel like and tell me if I'm wrong that kids today, um, want to find that perfect job that there's this sort of perfection myth that I need to find exactly what I studied in what I got my degree in and that's my first job and boom. I'm off on a career. So are they flexible enough? Well, I think you're right. I mean, I think that is the attitude that a lot of these students have, but they have. I think good reason for in many cases, which is they've been asked to pony up a lot of money for their education. And they've you know, gone into debt for it. I mean, you know the the rate of student debt in the amount of debt that today's graduates are carrying. Is unprecedented, so they want that job. They want the job that they invested. You know in getting and I think that they have that expectation. But I think you know the pandemic and might have produced the reality check that says, Hey, I need to get some work experience, no matter what it is. But I would say to the students yes. Go get that work experience. But don't take your eye off the ball of what you're really going for, in which you really studied for the book is pivot, empowering students today to succeed in an unpredictable Tomorrow education expert and former lead guitarist for the band Hanson Back in the.

"12. We check the little business news right now and get the latest from Pat. Well, our economists surprised at the jobs report for June a little bit, but in a good way. The best projection out there was for about 700,000 jobs added last month. So the actual number of 850,000 brings a lot of smiles, and it's not just the number of jobs. It's where those jobs are being filled jobs being created in bars and restaurants, sort of hospitality industry hotels. I think the surprise number in retail more jobs created there than we saw JJ Kinahan with TD Ameritrade says. Even a slight upward bump in the unemployment rate doesn't really concern him. Seeing that we are creating jobs. You may see the effect of that number going down next month. Wages were also up in June. Not by a lot month to month. But salaries are up about 3% from where they were a year ago. At this time on Wall Street, the Dow is up 22 points. The NASDAQ is up 55, the S and B is up, 12. Investors like the jobs report, But they're not as thrilled with the Congressional Budget Office projection that the US will post a deficit of $3 trillion this year. That's on top of what they believe will be an average of a $1 trillion deficit for the next decade. The office says. The pandemic and legislation passed in response are weighing heavily on the deficit. About $6 Trillion in Covid 19 relief has been signed into law by former President Donald Trump and President Biden.

"A hot button issue, but the problem is clearly getting worse. The latest data shows that the number of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness in the city has nearly tripled since 2014 and on top of that. The city is doing cleanups and sweeps of homeless camps that critics blame on the upcoming MLB. All Star Game, the mayor has said, is just a coincidence. Well, let's take a look at the challenges people experiencing homelessness face every day with Denver Rescue Mission President CEO Brad Miley I'm gonna live line. Good morning, Brad. Thanks for coming on. Good morning, April and Marty. Thanks for having me. I have talked to you so many times through the years. I know it's been many, many years that you've been at the helm there at the mission. How many is it exactly? And what have you seen some huge growth in the number of homeless people during that time? You know, it's it's my 23rd year at the Denver rescue mission, which is, uh, you know, think, really, Thank goodness that this community has continued to support our work. Yes, we continue to see a lot of books. Uh, this doesn't deter us, though, because we We get to see a lot of folks lives changed and we get to see people come out of homelessness. But There's a lot of reasons that people are homeless, including this great state that we live in. Uh, we've had a good economy. We've had a lot of jobs. What's been very difficult is it's expensive to to live here to find a place to live. Well, let's talk about some of those problems, Brad because it to me and you tell me there's kind of a three prongs with it. There's people that are down on their luck that are homeless. There's the mental health issue. But don't we have to talk about some people who are chronically homeless because they don't want to live in a in a shelter or replace and they want to be on the streets is so do we have to address all three of those separately and to to get to the root of the problem? Absolutely, you know, One of the things that we try to do is meet people where they are and try to trade right when they come into our facility and try to figure out okay. What? What do they need? Maybe they need mental help. Maybe we could connect him with via housing. Maybe they need to be in our new library ability ation program, Or maybe it's just a short term kind of situation. You know, someone that's recently moved here or someone has lost their job. And they just need, uh, you know, a little bit of time in in a program like our next step program, and so yes, it's you know, it continues to be, uh, difficult because there's so many. Different reasons for being homeless. Any idea what percentage of people fit into that category that Marty was talking about the chronically homeless that don't want to get off the streets? I I would say from my experience, it's somewhere around 10 to 15% are chronically homeless. You know that, But we've we've had folks you know that have been on the street for 12 years And finally after, you know, coming to the mission and or coming Salvation Army but definitely come into the Denver rescue mission. That's what I can speak up. You know, we've been able to convince them to come into one of our programs and help them, But it's a long battle. It's not. It's not a quick a quick a battle with with just an easy answer. Kind of on the note, Brad, then the mayor, laying out some ideas. Some solutions for homelessness. Do you do you like some of those ideas or are we still not getting to the real root or the deepness of the problem? I guess my question is is Denver. Are we doing enough where we can to help the homeless? Yeah, I think we can always do more. I'm very excited, though. That even uh, the safe outdoor space. Uh, which Colorado Collaborative is operating, called Chandler does a wonderful job with that, um, and that that has proved, you know, to be able to get people that are having difficulties that are experiencing homelessness. You know to take that next step? Uh, yes. We need more affordable housing. Yes, we We just opened a shelter a new shelter 450 beds that the city actually owns that building. And I think what we need to continue to do is, you know, use resources and work collaboratively. You know, one of the exciting things for me, I would just tell you is when I talked to other CEOs of rescue missions across the country. They do not have the collaborative collaborative efforts of service providers of city of businesses. You know that are working on this together, and I really think Denver's ahead of the curve. I know that there's a lot of tents out there. I know that there's a lot of people that are homeless, but I'm I'm excited that we're continuing to Try to be able to make a difference working together in our city, right? I know you can't really address the controversy over the homeless sweeps ahead of the All Star game. But you do know about the aftermath of those sweeps. When the city does them. Where do the people go? Yeah, well, a couple things sometimes. Sometimes they come in to to our shelters. Uh, but what happens A lot is they just move around The city? Uh, is moved from one place to another, You know, but it's a difficult It's a very, very difficult situation. Homelessness. It's a difficult situation and a tough conversation. But we appreciate you laying out some of those issues. Denver Rescue Mission President CEO Brad Miley Thank you. Thanks bread. Okay.

That's Jason Bloch Glad he is the pharmacy director for Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. You consign a pure young teen on their website for one of this weekend's vaccine clinics, starting this fall of rural public schools will be requiring vaccinations for all staff members. That decision announced yesterday in an email, the superintendent said. Exemptions will be allowed under state and federal law, he said. They're letting employees know now so they have time to make plans to get vaccinated before school starts. In the fall, Douglas County commissioners voted 2 to 1 in favor of a resolution to ignore the state's mask Mandate. Commissioner Laura Thomas was the only commissioner to vote against it. What I know is going to happen is there is going to be even more confusion in Douglas County. About when someone needs to wear a mask and when someone doesn't need to wear a mask, she went on to say she believes it's not good government to tell people the violate a state order. The state mandate requires masks in schools, childcare centers, hospitals and jails. It's unclear if the state will try to enforce the mask order in Douglas County following yesterday's vote.

Cheney blame former President Trump for provoking the January 6th attack on the U. S Capitol and continuing to push the idea that the election was stolen. She called it a threat that America has never seen before. She spoke before largely empty chamber. One of those listening, though, was Colorado Congressman Ken Buck Thean Array dealt a major setback in its bid for bankruptcy protection. It's an effort to reorganize in Texas was the task was tossed out in court. The judge said. The N R A is solvent and inappropriately tried to use bankruptcy to shield itself from regulators here in New York. The decision means the organization remains exposed to a lawsuit by state Attorney General Letitia James, who was seeking to shut down the entire A after she accused Wayne LaPierre and other top executives of corruption what they will We are freedom dissolution, James said. The N R A. I can no longer reincorporate in Texas, where it may have faced a more favorable political climate. Honore said it would remain in New York and confront its adversaries.
