DENVER (AP) Colorado lawmakers are hearing renewed debate over whether to join 44 other states in requiring private investigators to maintain state licenses.

Democratic Sen. Linda Newell has sponsored a measure that would mandate background checks and skills tests for people doing business as private eyes.

This is the second year in a row Newell has raised such a proposal, saying the current system attracts unscrupulous investigators.

The Democratic committee approved her bill 3-2 last week, and the measure now awaits a decision by the full Senate. It's not clear whether the bill is likely to become law.

Last year's measure cleared the Senate but died in the House on the closing days of the session.
