Abstract

As Sen. Jack Tate stood in the back of the Colorado House of Representatives watching the “exceptionally long” vote on an extensively negotiated and intricately crafted pension-reform bill, he admitted that he was pretty nervous. More than a year of talks hung in the balance, and the bill had to get the backing both of Republicans who thought it didn’t go far enough and Democrats who thought it went too far.
