Colorado's lawmakers hit the capitol floor back in January with high hopes for the legislative session.

Not all of those dreams came true over the 120 days they met.

On this week's Politics Unplugged, Speaker of the House Dickie Lee Hullinghorst and State Senator Kevin Grantham take a look at what those goals were and how close they came to reality.

They also talk about the controversial -- and confusing -- Hospital Provider Fee, which did not get a much anticipated overhaul during the session and what that means for lawmakers when they return to the capitol in 2017.

Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4 p.m. on Denver7.
