DENVER (KDVR) — In what is being described as an unprecedented move, leaders in the Colorado General Assembly will introduce a measure to suspend their annual session Friday.
The decision comes as the number of coronavirus cases in Colorado continues to increase.
Lawmakers told FOX31 and Channel 2 earlier this week that Capitol business is often conducted in crowded, small spaces and that continuing the session would hurt public health efforts.
The suspension begins Sunday; lawmakers plan to work on Saturday.
The General Assembly plans to reconvene on March 30.
