Round-Up: Legislative session halfway through, muffling the sound of a power plant, and more

March 12, 2010

Colorado lawmakers say they're making progress on bills as they near the halfway point of their 120-day session, but large issues like the state budget still loom...The Colorado Senate has approved an amendment to a bill that would strip Division of Real Estate Director Erin Toll of her authority to regulate mortgage lenders and give that job to a board...and, Xcel Energy plans to spend $1.5 million to muffle a high-pitched whine coming from a power plant in Pueblo.
