Colorado Senate Democrats: After 2013 gun debate, new rules for hearing bills planned. She had better support the overturning of the gun laws passed. If not, she DOES NOT get re-elected.
Senate President-elect Morgan Carroll says she doesn’t support overturning gun laws passed last year, but backs changing how bills are heard so that Coloradans find the Capitol “welcoming.”
“I think it’s … important that everybody who shows up gets to testify,” the Aurora Democrat said today.
Hundreds of people came to the Capitol in 2013 to testify against a package of Democratic gun bills but didn’t get a chance.
Carroll, Senate President Pro Tem Lucia Guzman of Denver and Majority Leader Rollie Heath today unveiled their caucus’ agenda for the upcoming session, which begins Wednesday. It can be found on the Senate Democrats’ web site. They said progress already has made on stimulating jobs and the economy, but the effort was overshadowed by headlines about guns, pot and other issues. More jobs bills will be introduced this session.
