Colorado Senate Democrats continued their attempts to amend a bill that would tie up $300 million a year from the state budget for transportation. Republicans played defense and ultimately passed Senate Bill 1 postponed to a third day of debate next Tuesday.
If Republicans pass the legislation on a recorded vote with their one-seat majority, the bill would then bounce the legislation to the House, where Democrats have a majority and the votes to amend it heavily or kill it outright.
