Governor John Hickenlooper urged state lawmakers and Coloradans to be creative entrepreneurs in his second state of the state address yesterday at the Capitol.

The Governor highlighted a range of topics from hydraulic fracturing, to economic development, to the Broncos. Additionally, as KUNC’s Bente Birkeland reports, he also took a stance on one of the session’s most controversial bills, a bill on civil unions.

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.
