Wildlife-Parks merger close to approval

DENVER — A money-saving merger of the state Division of Wildlife with Colorado State Parks has now cleared both chambers of the state Legislature and appears close to approval.

The House voted 49-14 today in favor of the merger, which already passed the Senate. Lawmakers must resolve differences before sending the measure to Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, who proposed the idea earlier this year.

Hickenlooper has said the merger could save the state $3 million to $4 million a year. If approved, the change would take effect this summer.

Lawmakers have until next Wednesday to agree on merger language so Senate Bill 208 can be signed into law.
