Ballot initiative eyed on Colorado illegals

by Mark5019 / February 24, 2005 10:16 AM PST

DENVER -- Coloradans fed up with what they call an "invasion" of their state say they will push for a ballot initiative after a legislative panel killed a bill that would have denied state services to illegal immigrants.
A House legislative committee defeated the bill 6-5 Tuesday in a straight party-line vote, with the Democrats voting against the proposal and the Republicans voting for it.
Undeterred, bill sponsor Republican Rep. David Schultheis said he would try another tactic: submitting the same proposal in the form of a concurrent resolution which, if passed by both legislative houses, would put the proposal before the voters in the form of a ballot referendum.


seems to me the democrats want the illegals??

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
