Governor John Hickenlooper has vetoed his first bill. The measure would have required monthly premiums for certain families enrolled in a healthcare program for low income children. But Republicans are criticizing the Governor for failing to rein in the entitlement program.

KUNC’s State Capitol reporter Bente Birkeland has more.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
