Colorado is approaching the midpoint of its legislative session, and Republicans in control of the House are flexing their newfound majority and moving forward a few controversial bills through that chamber. This comes after weeks of signature bills being quietly killed by their own sponsors.’s State Capitol reporter Bente Birkeland takes a closer look at what’s in store as part of our weekly capitol conversation series.

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.
