Denver (AP) Gov. Bill Ritter is preparing a package of legislation he says will shore up Colorado’s economy.
The governor plans to detail his proposal Thursday on job-creation bills he will send to state lawmakers next year. Ritter says his package includes small-business loans and more training at community colleges.
The Democratic governor has said that government investment in construction improvements and energy production are among the best ways Colorado can weather a national recession.
Already Ritter has asked President-Elect Barack Obama to steer more than $1 billion in federal road spending to Colorado.
