With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
Two bills dealing with abortion issues will likely highlight debate this week at the Legislature.
Representative Pam Rhodes is proposing a bill that would require a
physician to perform an ultrasound and give the woman a picture of
the fetus before performing an abortion. It would also require a 72-hour waiting period before the procedure could be conducted.
Senator Doug Lamborn has another proposal that would replace the
state's parental notification law with one requiring theirconsent before a minor could have an abortion.
Abortion rights activists say both bills are designed to discourage women from getting abortions.
