Colo. lawmakers race to wrap up business for year
DENVER, Colorado ” Colorado lawmakers are racing to wrap up business for this year’s legislative session.
The session must end by 12 a.m. Thursday, although House Speaker Terrance Carroll says he plans to adjourn a day early.
Among the issues lawmakers must still decide is whether to abolish the death penalty in Colorado.
Other bills still pending would require drivers to use handsfree devices when talking on their cell phones and toughen the state’s seat belt law.
Lawmakers are also considering a change to the law regarding background checks for gun buyers. Gun owners who have concealed weapons permits would be able to bypass further background checks each time they buy a weapon.
