LAW WEEK COLORADO
Gov. John Hickenlooper delivered his annual State of the State address Thursday, where he emphasized a need to focus on some of the most important issues facing Coloradans this year, such as transportation, the economy, health care and the “marijuana grey market.”
The governor stressed the importance of moving forward as a state, because the new presidential administration and Congress “clearly seek a different relationship between the federal government and the states,” adding that Coloradans have “always been trailblazers.”
He took the opportunity to brag about the state’s successful economy, stating that “six years, and almost 400,000 new jobs later, we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in Colorado’s history and the state of our state is strong.”
He also said that Colorado is one of the best states in the nation for business, careers, workforce and innovation.
