‘Trump Bump’ In Western Colorado; Marijuana Industry On Edge

Listen Now

There are signs of a "Trump bump" in the energy sector in Western Colorado. During an economic slump that's included low natural gas prices, the Grand Valley has worked to diversify, relying more on tourism and recreation.

She'll be inducted this year in the National Women's Hall of Fame.
