Colorado legislative session winding down, many bills still to discuss

DENVER, Colo. There are just fifteen days left in the Colorado legislative session and hundreds of bills are still yet to be decided upon.

Representatives are putting it into high gear, pushing harder than ever to get their legislation passed.

But as time winds down, some will run out of clock, and miss their opportunity.

"You would have a situation where some bills die on the calendar," says Senator Steve King. "In other words at 12 o'clock midnight on May 7th, if you're not done, you're not done."

King, who has represented Mesa County for the past eight years, still has a few things he'd like to get done in his final days.

He is currently pushing to beef up the quality and quantity of Colorado's aerial wildfire fighting capabilities and says he's quietly confident that it will pass.
