Colorado's two U.S. senators, Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner, both said Tuesday they were glad Senate Republicans decided to delay a vote on legislation meant to overhaul the health care system, although it was for different reasons. Bennet, a Democrat, said it was chance for a fresh start, while Gardner, a Republican, called it an opportunity to take more time to "rescue Americans" from the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

For the fourth straight year, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, is among a bipartisan team of legislators trying to push a bill through Congress that encourages energy savings in federal buildings. Gardner, as he has done since 2013 with earlier versions of the bill, helped introduce the Energy Savings Through Public-Private Partnerships Act of 2017 on Monday, Jan. 30. The legislation encourages the use of Energy Savings Performance Contracts and Utility Energy Savings Contracts in federal buildings.

Here's to a productive week wherever you might be as we enter this important phase of the election year. “I want to caucus in Iowa. I'll caucus all over the state. I don't caucus in California. You don't caucus where you live. It doesn't look good.” — Pat Paulsen Now your substrata feed straight from the politics pipeline: Sanders visits Fort Collins, another Colorado lawmaker catches the Bern —Yesterday, Bernie Sanders visited the Centennial State again, marking his fourth official campaign stop in Colorado, holding a rally at Moby Arena on the CSU campus in Fort Collins. While at the rally, Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, was visibly pumped up at the event and all smiles, and ... well, he caught the Bern, endorsing Sanders for president later that night.
