I heard from a capitol source y'all may have trouble with your CO House Dems keeping this in the bill! That shouldn't be! Maybe y'all need to sic your base on the recalcitrant D obstacles.

In Texas, some religious prison ministries have supported the issue too as part of a broader re-entry package and helped swing some important R votes, including some pretty conservative folks. Given the makeup of yall's Rs, maybe that could work there, too - you just need a few to make up for D defectors.

Good luck!
