After a failed attempt last year, Colorado lawmakers have passed a bill that would make it harder to get a vaccine exemption for school children.

Colorado lawmakers returned to work on Monday in a Capitol building with windows smashed and boarded up and graffiti being cleaned from its granite walls after four days of protests. Protesters planned to march again at the Capitol starting at 5 p.m.

Colorado's legislative session is just over two weeks old, and lawmakers have already introduced more than 270 bills and counting. With hundreds more bills expected to land in the coming weeks, here are some of the ones we are starting to watch at the state Capitol.

A Republican state lawmaker accused of sexual harassment last session is resigning. Sen. Randy Baumgardner, who represents Northwest Colorado, is stepping down in late January.

His resignation comes after a top Democrat at the capitol suggested he might try to force Baumgardner out during the upcoming session if he didn’t leave on his own.
