STATE BILL COLORADO
Gov. Bill Ritter and three Democratic legislators will have a news conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday to announce proposed legislation that will protect neighborhoods from abandoned properties.
The legislation will help cut in half the time it takes to sell abandoned homes that are in foreclosure so they don’t become a blight on Colorado neighborhoods. Joining Ritter will be state Reps. Dianne Primavera and Jeanne Labuda, and new Sen. Mike Johnston.
The announcement will be at Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow St., Lakewood.
