  • Tallying the 2013 legislative scorecard

    The Colorado legislature adjourned May 8 after completing the work of the first session of the 69th General Assembly. Highly contentious issues and partisan wrangling characterized the session.

  • Democrats prevail on two key issues

    When Democrats claimed control of both houses of the Colorado General Assembly in last November’s elections, there was little doubt that two priority issues would be enacted once the legislature convened. Just over halfway through the 120-day session, bills to establish civil unions and to allow illegal immigrants who matriculated at Colorado high schools to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities in our state have passed.
