KUNC is a member of Capitol Coverage, a collaborative public policy reporting project, providing news and analysis to communities across Colorado for more than a decade. Fifteen public radio stations participate in Capitol Coverage from throughout Colorado.

Capitol Conversation

Lawmakers wrap up statewide hearings on congressional redistricting on March 19th. A bi-partisan committee has traveled across Colorado to get input from voters on drawing new congressional lines. KUNC’s state capitol reporter Bente Birkeland explores the history and complications of having politicians write the map.

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.
