1.13.2014 Legislative session Opens with Northern Colorado Featured
Northern Colorado featured prominently in the opening day remarks by legislative leaders and the Governor during the first days of the opening of the 2014 Legislative Session. Each of the leaders, from President of the Senate Morgan Carroll and Speaker of the House Mark Ferrandino to Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman and House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, highlighted the devastating flood as an example of the strength and resolve of Coloradoans and of how Colorado came together to assist neighbors.
In addition to remarks about the flood, the opening sessions brought about the usual pomp and circumstance but cracks in the customary call for bi-partisan collaboration were evident in each of the remarks. Below is a brief summary of key tenets of the speeches by each leader. Copies of the entire speeches by the leaders are provided by hotlink on the Leaders’ name.
