DENVER (KKCO) - Two senators and one representative from Colorado are seeking billions of dollars for special projects.

Senator John Hickenlooper is seeking over $830 million for a total of 424 projects.

Senator Michael Bennet is seeking $650 million for almost 400 projects.

Representative Lauren Boebert, the only Republican making any requests, joined five Colorado House Democrats in requesting earmarked funding.

The requests must go through a lengthy process before they are added to the final federal budget for the 2024 fiscal year budget.
