Business For Breakfast: Boulder Climate Lawsuit And Colorado’s AG Race
Last Friday, Western Wire Managing Editor Michael Sandoval joined Joshua Sharf, sitting in for Business for Breakfast’s Jimmy Sengenberger, to discuss the City of Boulder’s possible climate lawsuit.
Sharf and Sandoval also offer a quick overview of the attorney general race in Colorado, an open seat in 2018 with incumbent Cynthia Coffman, a Republican, choosing to run for governor. An issue this cycle, attorney general independence, has emerged after Coffman squared off against Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, over the last administration’s Clean Power Plan. The Colorado Supreme Court declined Hickenlooper’s petition to stop Coffman from adding the state of Colorado to a multi-state lawsuit against the Clean Power Plan in 2015.
