Imagine stacking one piece of paper on top of another until that stack reaches 83 stories high. That’s how much paper has been printed on at the state Capitol this legislative session.
Since January, lawmakers have sorted through 2.5 million sheets of paper about bills, amendments, calendars and summaries, TheDenverChannel.com reports.
At least 500 of those sheets of paper were needed to print an Earth Day resolution for April 22. The resolution acknowledged green ideas and recycling.
