May 13, 2012--Colorado lawmakers return to work Monday for special session (CBS Denver)

Colorado lawmakers will return to work Monday for a special session ordered by Gov. John Hickenlooper. The civil unions bill will take center stage but lawmakers will also consider six other bills. The special session was sparked by House’s inability to take a vote on the civil unions measure before the regular session ended last Wednesday night. Among the other bills the governor asked lawmakers to address is one to fund 14 water projects, including one related to Lake Nighthorse, worth $55 million. The CWCB projects bill (SB 165) was one of the bills that died on the calendar.  Governor Hickenlooper has called for a Special Session to address specific legislation, and the water legislation is the first one on the list.
