Colorado Lobbyists Face a New World

· Apr. 5, 2010, 3:59 pm

Lobbyists in Colorado have different opinions about what it's like to live under Colorado's new lobbying restrictions. Since Amendment 41 went into effect on January 1st, lobbyists are spending more time in the hallways and offices of the state Capitol and less of it at restaurants, parties and sporting events. Some say the so-called Ethics in Government Law evens the playing field for all groups trying to influence the legislature; others say it effectively limits access to lawmakers. Dan Meyers talks to Tim Jackson, president of the Colorado Auto Dealers Association, and Rex Wilmouth, state director of the Colorado Public Interest Research Group, or CoPIRG.
