Colorado Edition: Close Enough To Count
Today on Colorado Edition: We examine Colorado’s legislative response to mounting mental health issues and concerns. Plus, we get a breakdown of the state’s plan for allocating early childhood stimulus funding from December’s federal aid package. We’ll also take a look at the first round of 2020 Census data and its accuracy, and we’ll hear about a group of second graders who are helping to prepare Coloradans for wolf reintroduction.
Today’s guests include: Ann Schimke, a senior reporter with Chalkbeat Colorado; and Paige Blankenbuehler, an associate editor with High Country News. Today’s show features reporting from: KUNC mental health reporter Leigh Paterson; and KUNC rural and small communities reporter Adam Rayes.
