Water-chugging faucets, toilets and showerheads could become illegal in Colorado under a bill that won preliminary approval in the state Senate Tuesday.
Republicans and gun rights advocates will try this week to repeal a law that prohibits the sale of ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. In the aftermath of mass shootings, Democrats passed the bill last year without GOP support, and the law became effective July 1. Here are five things to know about the debate.
In a story Feb. 3 about a bill to repeal an expansion of Colorado gun background checks, The Associated Press reported erroneously a statement by National Rifle Association lobbyist Daniel Carey.
