Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper is considering calling a special legislative session to deal with issues surrounding the Colorado floods.
Some issues of concern include laws to address looting and potential fraud. A final decision on the special session would be made in the next few days.
The regular legislative session starts in January.
The governor made the comments while announcing that he'd authorized another $65.5 million for flood recovery efforts, bringing the total amount of state funds he's approved so far to $91.5 million.
Hickenlooper also says the estimate to repair Colorado highways damaged by floods is now at $475 million.
