  3. House narrowly passes spending package ahead of deadlineRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Dec 11 | CW2 Colorado KWGN-TV

    The least productive Congress in history neared the end of its term on Thursday night with the House narrowly passing a $1.1 trillion compromise spending package that would fund the government through next September after a rancorous debate that underlined divisions within both Republican and Democratic caucuses. The bill's passage on a vote of 219-205 was a victory for both Speaker John Boehner and President Obama, both of whom lobbied intensely for their respective allies to pass the larger spending package even after it was larded up with partisan riders instead of just a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government for just three months.

    Thursday Dec 4 | CBS Local

    Colorado's next Senator, Rep. Cory Gardner, voted Thursday with most House Republicans to repeal President Obama's order allowing more than 4 million immigrants in the country illegally to stay, triggering accusations that his pledge to help immigrant communities during his campaign this year was hollow. Gardner's fellow Republican Rep. Mike Coffman, who has also tacked to the center on immigration, was one of only seven House Republicans to vote to uphold Obama's order from last month.

The measure is in a strong position after a key U.S. Senate panel voted this month in favor of a new land-use plan for Hermosa Creek that supporters said would provide outdoor havens for backpackers and snowmobile riders.
