Denver's Capitol owns the world's largest amount of Beulah red marble . Nearly all of the alluring pink stone was mined from the Beulah Red Marble Quarry in 1893 and used in the Capitol building. The only other traces were used in the old McClelland Library and the Pueblo County Courthouse. That history is just part of the reasons all who visit and all who live here should take a tour.
DENVER (AP) — Colorado lawmakers have begun a special session intended to fix a mistake in an intricate spending law but there's little sign of agreement.
Democratic leaders in the House say they expect the chamber to pass a fix on Monday, but its fate in the GOP-led Senate is uncertain.
Democrats in the Senate had a similar proposal but Republicans voted it down in a committee.
Senate Republican leaders say a special session is wasteful and also question whether a fix will violate provisions of Colorado's Taxpayers Bill of Rights.
Leaders for a handful of agencies, including Denver's Regional Transportation District, say the spending law removed their ability to collect millions in sales taxes on recreational marijuana.
Republicans argue that lawmakers can fix the problem during the regular session in January.
