Colorado Edition: This Land Was Made For You And Me
On today’s episode of Colorado Edition, we speak to Democratic Rep. Joe Neguse about his initiatives to protect public lands and grow the outdoor recreation economy. Then, we’ll learn about a new bill that would provide in-state tuition at higher education institutions for Indigenous people with historical connections to Colorado. Plus, we’ll discuss the impact of last year’s budget cuts to Colorado public colleges and universities, and the new cost-saving proposals on the table. And finally, we'll dive into upcoming negotiations over the management of the Colorado River.
Today’s guests include: Joe Neguse, Democratic lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives; Henry Sobanet, chief financial officer for the Colorado State University system; and Jason Gonzales, reporter at Chalkbeat Colorado. Today’s episode features reporting from KUNC’s Luke Runyon.
