DENVER (AP) - Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper will be talking about ideas to reduce regulation on businesses.
The governor and the executive director of the Department of Regulatory Agencies will be announcing recommendations Monday morning that were crafted after meeting with businesses across the state. They're part of an initiative called "Pits and Peeves."
Hickenlooper has said since taking office last year that easing regulations on businesses is one of his top goals. But Republicans have criticized him, saying he has not made enough progress on the issue.
Republican lawmakers will introduce several bills this year addressing business regulation. The legislative session starts Wednesday.
