Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Surrounded by hundreds of cheering children, Governor Owens signed a law Wednesday establishing the first state school voucher program since the U.S. Supreme Court declared such programs constitutional.
He says it will create opportunities for thousands of children.
Beginning next year, Colorado's law allow low-income families to move their children out of struggling public schools and put them in private schools.
The Colorado Education Association represents 36,000 teachers. It is considering a lawsuit challenging the program, arguing that it could cost public schools as much as $200 million in state aid.
