Republicans are criticizing Colorado Bureau of Investigations data that tracks the number of background checks done on private gun sales since a new law expanded the number of reviews required.
By The Associated Press (AP) — Good morning.
DENVER (AP) — Prepared text of Gov. John Hickenlooper's State of the State speech on Thursday:
DENVER (AP) — Gov. John Hickenlooper reflected on a year of tragedy, massive wildfires and historic floods during his annual State of the State address Thursday, telling lawmakers that "Colorado does not break" as he implored them to work together to improve the economy and pour funding into education.
Voters kicked him to the curb again at the ballot box, rejecting a proposed statewide income-tax hike heavily financed by Mr. Bloomberg just two months after ushering out two Democratic state senators who backed his gun-control agenda.
Two Republicans were sworn in Thursday to replace ousted Democratic state Sens. Angela Giron and John Morse, capping Colorado's history-making recall elections and signaling a shift in the state's political direction.
"It's alarming that these were presented in such a way to a committee to substantiate the Democrats' desire to kill this bill," he said.
Republican Senate Leader Bill Cadman said Monday that he was "extremely concerned that such misleading information would be provided as factually based testimony by the senior law enforcement professional in Colorado."
