DENVER — The Senate, which had spent much of the legislative session blocking legislation aimed at imposing a marijuana bloodstream limit for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs, quickly approved that proposal Tuesday morning on a bipartisan vote.

House Bill 1325 is on its way to Gov. John Hickenlooper after passing out of the Senate on a 23-12 vote.

The legislation carbon copy of the DUID bill that died in the Senate earlier this year, was just introduced last week. It passed the full House Monday morning.

It’s cleared the Senate Finance Committee Monday afternoon on a 3-2 vote, setting the stage for a debate on the Senate floor.

“We’ve seen a huge increase in fatalities,” said Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction, H.B. 1325’s sponsor.

Maybe because lawmakers have debated this bill for a few years in a row, never mind a few times already this session…
