from House Minority Leader Ferrandino
We had a tremendous response to the GOP's decision to kill over 30 bills in order to keep civil unions from coming to an up or down vote. Thank you.
Governor Hickenlooper has determined that the House GOP's failure of leadership is bad for Colorado. Therefore, he just called a Special Session of the legislature to find solutions for critical issues that were left unresolved. The legislature will once again consider establishing civil unions in Colorado, so that we have one more opportunity in 2012 to give families equality before the law.
The House Democrats are committed to getting all of this important work done on a bipartisan basis. We will continue fighting to get a civil unions bill the up or down vote it deserves.
