Duran favors legislation to give broad access to computer science and digital literacy
from Colorado Springs Gazette
When a House speaker, especially in a first session, carries a computer education bill, you can bet it's a priority for the caucus. Crisanta Duran, the Denver Democrat set to become the state's first Latina speaker of the House on Jan. 11, said the road through Colorado's middle class and beyond starts with a good job. With boxes still unpacked around the perimeter of her new office, Duran was considering putting her name and clout behind a high-tech resource bank in the Department of Education. Sponsoring a bill is a time-consuming task, involving a series of committee hearings, making a case for it on the House floor and fending off lobbyists.
