Colorado leadership seeking billions in funding for special projects
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.
