Colo. Rep. Kathleen Curry, whose district includes Aspen, believes her bill to clarify and expand the rights of commercial raft companies is in danger of failing in the state senate, The Glenwood Springs Post-Independent writes. “I think the opponents are gaining ground in the Senate,” said Curry, a Gunnison lawmaker who left the Democratic party this winter and is now unaffiliated. There are 17 lobbyists working to defeat the bill, according to Curry’s count earlier this week. “That’s one for almost every ‘no’ voted needed,” she said. Eighteen votes would kill the bill in the 35-member state Senate. The measure passed the House 40-25 in February.
