Former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter Jr. to Visit Sturm College of Law; Will Discuss Renewable Energy Policies and Results

On Saturday March 12, former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter Jr. will visit the Sturm College of Law (SCOL) at the University of Denver where he will be interviewed about how his administration approached energy issues during his term as governor.

Of special focus will be the renewable energy policies he promoted and helped enact into Colorado law. His views about regional energy issues -- including transmission -- as well as federal issues will also be explored.

The SCOL Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program is sponsoring the program. Don Smith, the program's director, will conduct the interview, which will begin at 9 a.m. in the Hughes Rare Books room in the Westminster Library (the room is located on the second floor of the Sturm College of Law; enter the Westminster Law Library, turn left, walk by the staircase, and then turn left into the Hughes room.) The interview is open to the public.

Mr. Smith is seeking ideas for questions and would welcome ideas from any members of the DU community. He asks that your question be specific and include any background information that will be useful to provide context for the question. While he will make his best effort to ask submitted questions, the questions will be reviewed to avoid redundancy. Please submit your questions (and background materials) by 5 p.m. Thursday (tomorrow) to his e-mail address

The full interview will be available on the Sturm College of Law website next week.
