Two-and-a-half weeks till closing time, and there’s plenty of business left to conduct in this building. All eyes will be watching <strong>transportation-funding</strong> <a href="https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/hb17-1242" target="_blank">House Bill 1242</a>. It’s being heard Tuesday in the Senate Finance committee. It’s one of the big-deal top-priority bills of the session, and it seems doomed. Will there be amendments? Will someone have found a new revenue stream to replace the sales tax hike? Will the parties working the bill feel like they can put their cards on the table at this point? Will the bill be killed only to be reincarnated into something more attractive in the coming days?
