That Fits the Bill

Need some special-interest legislation? Here's how this year's session measures up

HJR 1006: Aimed to immortalize Jack Swigert, late Apollo 13 pilot. Looked promising until opponents testified the airman was a womanizer.

SJR 5: Hoped to install Wayne Aspinall, longtime U.S. representative, as the final Coloradan with a Capitol bust.

SJR 10: Would have planted Joe Martinez, the first Hispanic awarded the Congres-sional Medal of Honor, in Statuary Hall.

HJR 1008: This bill, which would've swung Brush's big-band leader Glenn Miller into the Capitol, was killed.

SJR 7: Trade school matriarch Emily Griffith didn't make it, either.
HJR 1011: Nor did Barney Lancelot Ford, emancipated slave and civil-rights leader in the late 1800s.

SCR 9: Time-out. Senator Gloria Tanner suggested this measure, which would have set up a special commission to oversee the statue selection process. It was killed in early March.

SB 227: Punt. Senator Tilman Bishop's bill would have let voters decide by referendum which Coloradan is notable enough to represent the state in Statuary Hall. But it was killed late last week.

Better luck next year.
