Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says the state is in good shape. Hickenlooper delivered his 2017 State of the State speech yesterday. Speaking at the House of Representatives Chamber in Denver, Hickenlooper focused on infrastructure and broadband in the state, homelessness, healthcare, and the state's budding marijuana industry. The governor said infrastructure investments are important for the state because they lead to jobs.
He also announced the creation of a broadband office to bring reliable and affordable Internet connection to rural communities by the time he leaves office.
