Legislature Still No Closer To Illegal Immigration Reform Solution

There's still several unresolved issues in Denver, as state lawmakers adjourned for the day without making any headway in regards to illegal immigration legislation.

While the state Senate did send several bills, including a proposal to raise the age for common law marriages, to Governor Bill Owens' desk, the plan to bar state services to illegal immigrants and for job applicants to prove citizenship remain bogged down in the Senate. The house adjourned Sunday afternoon after approving a measure that would require the state Supreme Court to rule within 30 days of the filing of briefs in challenges to decisions by the state title board on ballot initiatives.

The Senate also approved a November ballot issue asking voters to decide whether the Attorney General should sue the Federal Government, in efforts to improve the enforcement of immigration laws.
