Hickenlooper Floats Higher Education Idea

October 29, 2010

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper says if elected as the state's next Governor he would ask oil and gas companies for a voluntary increase in severance taxes to help fund college scholarships. Hickenlooper made the comments to the Durango Herald earlier this week. The suggestion took many energy companies by surprise. Bente Birkeland has more from the state capitol.
