Colorado lawmakers will begin the 2016 legislative session next week. Not everything they’ll debate will be new.  Lawmakers will consider bills that were killed in the past. Resurrected legislation, or so-called "zombie bills," aren’t a new thing, say lobbyists Becky Brooks and Michael Beasley. Both have worked in Colorado politics for decades. Brooks, president of Stealey II, and Beasley, founder of 5280 Strategies, spoke with Colorado Matters' host Ryan Warner.
