Capitol Conversation: How We Got To A Special Session

Colorado lawmakers are coming back to the state capitol Monday for the start of a special legislative session to address civil unions. The bill was one of many that got caught in the crossfire last week and failed in the waning hours of the session.

KUNC’s state capitol reporter Bente Birkeland spoke with fellow statehouse reporters about the unusual circumstance that got us to this point and what it means politically.

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.
