DENVER — Leaders of Colorado’s House and Senate have postponed a meeting to address future updates to the Capitol’s workplace harassment policy.

Lawmakers were busy negotiating deals on strengthening Colorado’s underfunded state pension system and other issues on Wednesday, the last day of the 2018 legislative session.

It wasn’t immediately known when the meeting would be rescheduled.

The policy was tested during the four-month session as five lawmakers were accused of — and one expelled for — sexual misconduct.

Leaders plan to discuss recommended policy changes in a report presented in April by Denver-based Investigations Law Group. They hope a new comprehensive policy can be adopted by the 2019 Legislature.
