DENVER (AP) -- Jobs, jobs and jobs are the top three priorities when the Colorado Legislature convenes on Jan. 7.
Gov. Bill Ritter and legislative leaders outlined their plans for the upcoming session on Monday and Republicans and Democratic leaders agreed that the top issue on the minds of voters is the economy.
Ritter says transportation projects would help create jobs and at the same time fix problems that affect everyone, from drivers to consumers.
Ritter says a lot depends on what the federal government decides, and that will have to wait until President-elect Obama is sworn in Jan. 20.
