DENVER (AP) State lawmakers are scheduled to work on bills regarding DNA evidence and anti-discrimination laws this week.
On Wednesday, a house committee is set to hear testimony on a bill that would require the preservation of DNA evidence collected during the investigation of a crime.
It also would require police to receive training on how to handle DNA evidence.
Also Wednesday, a senate committee is expected to take up a new bill that would make it illegal to deny gays and lesbians everything from an apartment rental to a burial plot. It would take existing anti-discrimination laws and adds sexual orientation to the list of factors, such as race and national origin, that can't be considered.
