Energy bill leads repeal attempts in Colorado

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Republicans want to try undoing some left-leaning proposals adopted last year, and their campaign starts with electricity.

A GOP proposal on energy is up for its first hearing Wednesday. The bill would strike a new law that dramatically raises renewable energy requirements for Colorado's rural cooperative electric associations.

Democrats are giving a frosty reception to the idea, expected to be the first Republican repeal effort defeated in the Democratic Legislature.

The energy law helped inspire last year's failed secession movements in parts of rural Colorado.
