2,000 PEOPLE ON THE WEST STEPS TODAY? It’s Homeschool Day At The Capitol
IMPROPABLY, COLORADO’S HOUSE passed the annual budget bill on a 64-1 vote.
PUBLIC RADIO REPORTER MEGAN VERLEE Tweets that the chamber is “remarkably agreeable” because it also passes reorganization of the governor’s energy office, the film incentive bill and closure of the CSP2 prison.
SAYS HOUSE AGREES MORE THAN IT DISAGREES: Pete Lee.
IN THEIR SIGHTS: The state’s most strident gun-rights group claims that Republican Sen. Jean White, who has had a concealed-weapons permit for 15 years, is “anti-gun.” She’s vying today for a ballot spot with Rep. Randy Baumgardner.
IT’S LIKE A SENIOR PRANK, only not a very good one.
PRIVILEGE AND PRESERVATION IN THE CORPORATE SETTING: Davis Graham & Stubbs partner Andrea Wang will be presenting a free CLE program with ethics credits anticipated for in-house lawyers on how to avoid communication pitfalls in the digital age. The program is co-sponsored with Law Week Colorado. 7:30 – 9:00 a.m., Thursday, April 26, Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP, 1550 17th Street, Suite 500 Denver, CO 80202.
MAYBE REPORTERS MESS UP HIS OFFICE? AP’s Kristen Wyatt Tweets that “dogs get told when bills are going to be signed. Press does not” after House GOP staffer gets photo of the day of a dog licking governor’s face at bill signing.
AT LAST, SOMEBODY WHO DOESN’T THINK THERE OUGHT TO BE A LAW: The state task force that has been looking at jurisdictional conflicts over oil and gas drilling regulations is recommending more collaboration between the state and local governments.
THE NAME ‘COLORADO GIVES SUBSIDIES TO FILMMAKERS’ WASN’T AVAILABLE: A Senate committee on Wednesday gave its unanimous approval to a resolution to rename the Boulder Turnpike the Buffalo Highway.
LIKES LOTTO FOR VETS: Steve King.
LIKE IMMIGRANT TUITION BILL: Quite a few Republicans.
SIGNED: Hybrid-vehicles tax bill.
INTRODUCED IN SECOND CHAMBER AND ASSIGNED TO COMMITTEE: Immigrant-tuition bill.
