DENVER-— “Illegitimate” children, “married women,” and the “mentally retarded” all have specific mentions in the state laws of Colorado — for now.
A slate of bills to modernize the language of those laws will be heard for the first time Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
It’s purely a matter of language. The nonpartisan staff for the legislature reports that none of the updated language will change the way the state conducts business or cost taxpayers any money.
The three bills all have sponsors from both major political parties and are scheduled to get their first public hearings at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday in the Colorado State Capitol.
