Daniel "Dan" Paul Nordberg[2] is an American politician and a former Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives. He represented House District 14 from January 9, 2013 to January 8, 2018, when he resigned from office to take a job with the Small Business Administration.[3]

Education[edit]

Nordberg earned his bachelor's degree in political science from Colorado State University.

Legislation[edit]

During the 2013 and 2014 session, Dan Nordberg sponsored 13 bills, 6 of which were signed into law by Governor Hickenlooper. Of the three bills signed into law in 2014, two aim to mitigate the possibility of a Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) by authorizing the state of Colorado to furnish data outlining the negative impact a BRAC would have on Colorado,[4] and improve collaboration between federal and state policymakers.[5] Another law eliminates income tax for non-resident emergency service workers, thus removing financial deterrents for out of state individuals and businesses lending aid in times of declared disasters.[6]

In 2013, three of Dan Nordberg's proposed bills were signed into law. One bill ensured aid received by military families remains tax free.[7] Another bill authorized a study to determine the impact of human trafficking in Colorado so that legislative solutions could be procured.[8] The final measure requires regulators to notify legislators when they promulgate rules as a result of their legislation.[9]

Other bills which did not pass would have:

  • Required a super-majority to create or increase fees[10]
  • Authorized state audit of Colorado Health Insurance Exchange[11]
  • Provided state tax deduction matching federal penalty for persons who fail to purchase health insurance, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act[12]
  • Prohibited use of public assistance money at marijuana dispensaries[13]
  • Strengthened 4th amendment rights by requiring law enforcement to furnish a warrant to search electronic data[7]

Representative Nordberg was a member of the following committees:

  • Business, Labor, Economic, & Workforce Development[14]
  • Joint State Veterans & Military Affairs Committee[15]
  • Legislative Audit[16]
  • State, Veterans, & Military Affairs[15]

Elections[edit]

  • 2012 With Republican Representative Janak Joshi redistricted to District 16, Nordberg was unopposed for the June 26, 2012 Republican Primary, winning with 7,442 votes;[17] and won the three-way November 6, 2012 General election with 26,346 votes (76.3%) against Libertarian candidate R.
