Colorado Legislature Begins Historic 2009 Session

Colorado lawmakers began their 2009 session Wednesday. In a historic opening day, Representative Terrance Carroll became the first African American speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives. Carroll and Colorado Senate President Peter Groff's roles make Colorado the first state to have elected black leaders to both of its legislative chambers. See the Denver Post for further details.

The website of the Colorado General Assembly provides House and Senate calendars, the history and status of bills, a directory of legislators, districts maps, and video and audio broadcasts of current proceedings. LexisNexis State Capital, which is available on the CU-Boulder campus (and to CU employees and students with off-campus access), provides bills, statutes and constitutions, digests of state law, proposed and final regulations, legislative directories, and news.
