Legislature entering the final stretch

DENVER (AP) - Colorado's first divided Legislature in a decade is limping toward the finish line with plenty of topics to settle before the final gavels fall Wednesday.

The biggest obstacle facing the Democratic Senate and Republican House is congressional redistricting, a process required every 10 years to adjust district lines after a Census. Lawmakers entered the session's final weekend with no agreement ready to be signed into law as they bickered over how to change the state's seven congressional districts.

Lawmakers also must decide how to adjust sweeping medical marijuana regulations adopted last year, including new registry requirements for caregivers and a plant limit for makers of cannabis-infused foods.

All told, hundreds of proposals still have a chance until Wednesday.
