DENVER -- Monday’s signing into law of Senate Bill-200 -- a bipartisan public pension rescue plan that Republicans made a top priority for the 2018 session -- marked the capstone of an extraordinarily productive and successful legislative session for Senate Republicans, who began the year promising big things and delivered on virtually every one of them, despite the challenges presented by having to operate in a politically divided Statehouse.
