Colorado teachers won't be barred from striking – or face fines or jail time – because the bill's GOP sponsor says he'll yank it

The Republican state senator who brought a bill seeking to prohibit Colorado teachers from striking by threatening firings, fines or even jail time said Monday he will kill his own measure, citing concerns over lawmakers’ already large workload in the waning days of this legislative session.

“We don’t have time to have two hours of testimony for a bill that won’t move forward,” said Sen. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs. “You introduce bills for public policy discussions as much as anything, and the bill certainly caused that.”
