August 5, 2010
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us this week on the Capital Thinking Internet Radio Show with special guest host Michael Dino. First up we talk to Stephen Nash, a new attorney in Patton Boggs' Denver office specializing in health and hospital law, about the impact of this week's decision by Judge Henry Hudson (E.D. Va.), in Virginia v. Sebelius. We'll discuss the nation's new health care law and whether there is constitutional authority to regulate “a person's decision not to purchase a product, notwithstanding its effect on interstate commerce.” Then, we talk to Chantal Unfug, senior advisor at Denver Parks and Recreation, about National Parks and Recreation Month and how Denver is promoting health and wellness. Next, Bob Briggs, with the Colorado High Speed Rail Authority, will discuss Colorado's efforts to upgrade its commuter rail lines within the state and throughout the region. Finally, political analyst Matt Knoedler discusses the latest developments in Colorado’s gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.
