Lt. Gov. Diane Primavera unveils the state report on healthcare costs on Jan. 23, 2020.

Democrats in the state legislature say they're ready to step into two big areas where they don't think Coloradans are being well served: with the cost of their health insurance, and their access to paid family leave. But we're almost halfway through the legislative session and bills to tackle those issues are still on the drawing board... What gives? Health reporter John Daley joins hosts Andrew Kenney and Bente Birkeland to discuss progress on the public option bill, and a possibly fatal set-back in the paid leave effort. And on hot bills: the death penalty is repealed, electric car sales are contemplated, and vaccines are still on everyone's mind.
