Another great article from The Colorado Sun (if you’re not already supporting them, please consider doing so)

Quote:
During the legislative session in 2018, the Democratic-controlled state House passed 90 bills that later met their doom in the Republican-controlled Senate. All but 16 of those bills were killed on a party-line vote.

The 74 remaining bills blocked by Republicans now offer a roadmap for how the Democrats may govern in January when the party takes control of both legislative chambers and the governor’s office.

Will do so on your recommendation for Colorado news. Is it as even handed as possible, in terms of politics?

Sounds like a lot of unnecessary government regulation coming our way, which means increased cost of living.

It’s a new publication this year that rose out of the ashes of the corporate layoffs at the Denver Post. They brought a ton of talent over and have done a great job reporting on local issues without any major partisan slant that I’ve seen.

I think this article is a good example of a “just the facts” approach.

Definitely not facts that all regulation is unnecessary or that it increases cost of living. Regulation can greatly improve quality of life and avoid expensive circumstances that tax payers end up shouldering the burden for.

It leans left but is by far the best source for news in Colorado.

Most government regulation add costs that are either paid for by the consumer or the taxpayer. I did not say "all", and I agree that some are beneficial.
