Denver (AP) - Colorado lawmakers are gathering at the Capitol to discuss the state's budget crisis.
Lawmakers asked members of Gov. Bill Ritter's cabinet to outline their plans Tuesday to cut the state budget before the end of this year. They also plan to meet with Ritter.
Ritter says his administration is working with lawmakers and others to cut $400 million and will release the plan in August.
