Governor John Hickenlooper marked his first 100 days in office Thursday praising his cabinet and staff for making the transition smooth. And while Hickenlooper wins high marks from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for taking a collaborative approach to the job, some of his top priorities for the legislative session are still up in the air.

KUNC’s state capitol reporter Bente Birkeland has more.
