In their monthly conversation, host Ryan Warner talks with Hickenlooper about some oil and gas bills which may come his way, how marijuana regulations are shaping up, and whether the killing of prisons chief Tom Clements will lead to any changes in how the Department of Corrections does business.

[Note: This interview was recorded on Thursday morning, April 25. Early Friday, a conference committee agreed on new changes to SB025, the firefighters' organizing bill. As of Friday afternoon, the governor's office had no update on whether the alterations sufficiently address his opposition to the bill.]
