Gov. John Hickenlooper called Colorado’s 2018 legislative session the most successful one he’s seen, even though he wanted more money spent on transportation and lost the battle for a bill about mental health and guns.

And on reforms to the state’s public pension system, he says: “When you step back and look at who made more, who made less, I think they work out pretty evenly.”

Here, the governor offers his take on what passed, what failed and what’s next.
