The Colorado Senate considered a bill to beef up funding for transportation without raising taxes Wednesday but it bogged down in amendnents about where the money would go, as well as delivering a tacit protest of the bill's sponsor.

The Trump administration is OK with a ban on bump stocks.

The Colorado Senate gave preliminary approval to a gun bill Monday that would do away with concealed carry permits in the state. Republicans have a one-seat edge in the Senate, so when the recorded vote happens in the next few days, they should have enough lift to send Senate Bill 97 to the House. The […]

Have a little taste of kush, Colorado. That’s the aim of a new bill to set up pot tasting rooms in towns that want them across the state. House Bill 1258 would allow those with existing marijuana retail licenses to add a caveat that customers can use some of it on the premises, much like […]
