Gov. Jared Polis at a signing ceremony for SB21-260 on Thursday, June 17, 2021, underneath Interstate 70 at the bottom of Floyd Hill, beside Clear Creek. The transportation funding bill passed this legislative session is projected to raise $5.4 billion by the 2031-32 fiscal year.

With broad access to vaccines, Governor Jared Polis says the medical emergency is over. We ask Polis about masks, abortion access, wildfires, highway construction, and crime. Then, the new star-studded satire "Don't Look Up" is about a comet hurtling towards Earth, a metaphor for climate change. And a member of the Colorado Matters family is moving on.
