Colorado capitol delays

Lots of reading is happening at the statehouse lately, slowing action on bills.

Stalling at the state Capitol won't necessarily stop the bills that are prompting the delays.

Colorado's House and Senate Republicans are using the rules to their advantage to slow down the debate and votes on controversial bills, like the "red flag" gun measure and oil and gas regulation.

But at the same time, bills that are not controversial are pushed off because of the calendar delays. Bills like increasing the fine for passing snow plows in a diagonal "echelon" formation or the creation of a Mesa Verde license plate.
