High Fire Danger Today

Legislative Preview

Water. Money. Medicaid and automobile insurance. Those are the issues that will no doubt dominate the upcoming legislative session, and they'll hit close to home for Colorado residents. The session will open on Wednesday.

Lawmakers have put a top priority on jumpstarting the economy to ease government budget woes. They also want to agree on a plan to cope with the worst drought in recorded history.

Gov. Bill Owens and his fellow Republicans believe the best recipe for fixing the economy is adding value to an expected national recovery, spending what money they can find on transportation and education, rebuilding the tourist economy and reducing government mandates.

Democrats who want to return to grassroots support will focus on ranchers facing water crises and small business owners coping with skyrocketing insurance costs.
