SEE YOU EARLY IN APPROPRIATIONS!
LEGISLATORS SCRAPPING over office space.
BACKED-UP FLOOR CALENDARS, especially in the House, were significantly reduced on Monday and several key education bills were swept along by the momentum, including the 2012-13 school finance act, Education News Colorado’s Todd Engdahl writes. “And the House Education Committee took an historic vote, passing Senate Bill 12-015, which would create a special tuition classification for undocumented students. The committee killed a similar bill during the 2011 session.”

KEEPING ITS OWN CAMPAIGN-FINANCE RULES: Pitkin County.
JUST THE ECONOMIC NEWS WE WERE HOPING FOR: Blockbuster moving HQ to Douglas County.
