Balance of Power: Legislative recap

The leadership from both chambers of Colorado's legislature sit down with reporter Brandon Rittiman to discuss the 2018 legislative session and what's next for them personally and professionally.

Colorado's 2018 legislative session is over. It ended late Wednesday night with a deal to change the way public employees receive their retirement benefits.

The 2018 session also saw a deal on transportation funding, the expulsion of a member after he was accused of sexual harassing lawmakers and lobbyists and a partisan battle over the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

It was also the last term for both House Speaker Crisanta Duran (D-Denver) and Senate President Kevin Grantham (R-Canon City).

The two sat down with reporter Brandon Rittiman to talk about the 180-day session and what's next for them as they prepare to leave the legislature.
