Changes, controversy ahead for Colorado legislature

Posted at 4:00 PM, Oct 14, 2018

DENVER – The Colorado legislature does not meet again until January, but there’s a lot at stake right now.

State Rep. Javon Melton has been asked to step down after reports he was arrested - twice in the past - for harassing or abusing girlfriends.

As that drama plays out, Melton and other members of the legislature face a November election where many of them face strong challengers which could lead to shifts in power at the state house.

On this weekend’s Politics Unplugged, statehouse reporter Marianne Goodland of ColoradoPolitics.com joins Anne Trujillo to discuss what’s ahead at the capitol.

Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Denver7 and noon on K3-KCDO.
