Colo lawmakers headed to end of session

DENVER – Colorado lawmakers are in the home stretch as they head toward the end of this year’s session on Wednesday.

The Legislature still has major issues left on the calendar, including teacher tenure, college finance and senior tax breaks.

Republicans and Democrats say this session was about “jobs, jobs, jobs,” but they disagree on their success of tackling that issue.

Democrats say they created thousands of new jobs in renewable energy, but Republicans say consumers and businesses will have to pay more in taxes and fees.
