Colorado lawmakers racing to finish legislative session by Wednesday
Last Updated: 213 days ago
DENVER - Colorado lawmakers are racing to the finish this year's session.
The session must end by midnight Wednesday and there are a lot of big issues pending, including new regulations for the legalization of marijuana.
The Senate Finance Committee approved two measures to tax and regulate pot on Friday but lawmakers haven't settled the debate on how the newly legal drug should be grown, packaged, labeled and sold.
Other issues that are still pending are new oversight on the oil and gas industry, taxes on online sales, and driver's licenses for people in the country illegally. Democratic leaders insist they'll have everything done on time and there won't be a need for a special session.
