Special Session of Colorado General Assembly Ends

The 2012 special session of the Colorado General Assembly ended today after passing bills on three of the subjects it was convened to consider.  Bills on the other items before the state legislature, including civil unions, were killed.

[T]he civil unions proposal failed in a Republican House committee, and many of the additional bills Hickenlooper asked lawmakers to consider perished, too.

The Senate rejected a proposal to set a blood marijuana limit for drivers. A bill to create "benefit corporations" died in the House. The Legislature passed just three bills—one on water projects, one on unemployment insurance and one on machinery regulation.
