The future — or was it the past? — of the Republican Party visited Colorado Springs this week. As reported in Colorado Politics, the famously rich and politically active Koch brothers visited Colorado, hosting their twice-yearly rich guy donors meeting at the swanky Broadmoor Hotel. The Kochs, David and Charles, hosted a gathering of some 500 or so very wealthy folks, each of whom has pledged to donate at least $100,000 per year to achieve their political ends. As CP reports, “the (Koch brothers') conservative network remains one of the nation’s most influential political forces.”

Three members of Colorado's Congressional delegation reintroduced four bills related to public lands and land use issues across the state on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Democratic Rep. Jared Polis and Republican Reps. Scott Tipton and Doug Lamborn managed to get all four bills approved in the House of Representatives in the last session, but they did not make it to the U.S. Senate for a vote. Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Republican Sen. Cory Gardner sponsored the companion legislation at that time.
