The Colorado state Senate on the last day of the legislative session. May 8, 2023.

As the legislative session wraps up, a look at what state lawmakers accomplished and how it will affect average Coloradans. Legislation on guns and property tax prevailed, but a major land use bill failed. Then, foreign consolutes in Colorado. And, racist themes in a popular opera. Also, girls in computer science and a high school poet competes in Washington, DC.
