After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Workers who helped finish the cleanup of Rocky Flats more than a year ahead of time may have worked themselves out of health and pension benefits.
Because work at the former nuclear weapons plant was completed early, up to 70 employees haven't completed enough time to qualify for pensions or medical and life insurance.
Colorado Senators Wayne Allard and Ken Salazar introduced an amendment to a defense bill to allocate 15-million dollars to cover those workers.
But the U.S. Senate today killed it.
The government will save about 500-million dollars because the cleanup at Rocky Flats finished well ahead of the December 2006 deadline.
Allard says workers shouldn't have been penalized for getting the job done early.
