Beer, marijuana, oil taxes on final list for Colorado lawmakers

DENVER (AP) — Gas and grass are some of the remaining to-do items waiting for Colorado lawmakers when they meet Wednesday for the last time this year.

They’ve also got to agree on a bill allowing full-strength beer in more grocery stores.

Colorado’s Democratic House and Republican Senate are close to agreement on one of the priciest bills of the year — setting aside some $115 million for oil and gas producers who were wrongly overcharged for certain taxes.

The beer and pot beer bills are a little trickier.

Swirling around the Legislature is the outcome of a bill to allow more grocery stores to sell full-strength beer.

The marijuana bill would allow out-of-state investors to join the state’s marijuana industry. The proposal has passed both chambers, but in slightly different forms.
