Hickenlooper signs first bills into law

DENVER — Gov. John Hickenlooper has started the most important part of his job — signing bills into law.

The new Democratic governor signed seven bills today. They’re all relatively minor matters, but they gave Hickenlooper a chance to warm up his pen as lawmakers start sending more legislation his way. The laws included extending an optional income tax donation box to aid military families.

Colorado’s governor has just 10 days to sign or veto bills after lawmakers send them to him, assuming the Legislature is in session. Colorado has no pocket veto, so bills become law if the governor doesn’t sign or veto them.

Both chambers of the Legislature must agree on a single bill before sending it to the governor, a process that can take weeks.
