DENVER -- Transportation will be one of the biggest topics as Colorado lawmakers move through their 2017 session, but it likely won't be the defining topic.

Marianne Goodland of the Colorado Independent joined Anne Trujillo on Politics Unplugged to discuss what's ahead for the state as lawmakers get down to business.

Goodland pointed out that some of the first issues that came up involved construction defects and a move to repeal Colorado's health care exchange. Both could be long and involved discussions before the 120 day session is up.

She also keeping a close eye on a bill that would ban synthetic urine.
