Colorado Edition: Working Through Change

Scott Franz
Capitol Coverage

Today on Colorado Edition: As state lawmakers return to the Capitol for the start of the 2021 session, we’ll explore how the pandemic, and last week’s violence at the U.S. Capitol, will impact opening day. We’ll also get a preview of education-related bills lawmakers are expected to take up in the coming year. We’ll learn how large wildfires may impact water supplies. And finally, we check in with folks in Colorado’s restaurant industry to hear how the recently relaxed pandemic restrictions have affected business.

Our guests include: KUNC’s state capitol reporter Scott Franz; Chalkbeat Colorado’s Jason Gonzales; and KUNC reporter & producer Rae Solomon.

Today’s episode also features reporting from KUNC’s Colorado River Basin reporter Luke Runyon.
