This Week in the Legislature, Feb. 6, 2012

After taking Friday off because of a massive snowstorm, the Legislature will have some catching up to do on the floor of the House and Senate, clearing some bills immediately before them.

■ Today: An ethics committee looking into the circumstances surrounding Rep. Laura Bradford’s traffic stop Jan. 25 will meet for the first time.

■ Wednesday: The Senate Agriculture, Natural Resources & Energy Committee will hear a bill sponsored by Sen. Steve King that would prevent questionable new rules from being considered by the Colorado Water Quality Control Commission. The rules could cost local governments millions of dollars to implement.

■ Thursday: House Economic & Business Development Committee will consider a bill sponsored by King and Bradford that would prohibit local building codes from barring the use of wood from pine-beetle-killed trees in housing construction.

■ Next week: The Senate Finance Committee will consider a bill to allow medical marijuana centers to form “financial cooperatives” similar to credit unions.

All floor action and committees can be watched or heard on the Legislature’s website,
