But it's an open question whether a Legislature sharply divided between Republicans and Democrats will manage to agree on those proposals.

After two years of Democratic control, the Legislature is newly divided. Republicans control the Senate by a single seat, and Democrats hold the House by just three seats.

The National Weather Service said Saturday visibility will drop as the wind picks up causing whiteout conditions.

Snow along the Eastern Plains is expected to end by midnight with up to four inches of new powder.

The drive along Interstate 70 west of Denver will also be snowy at times. The heaviest snow will fall around the Flattops and Park and Elkhead Mountains where accumulations could hit 4 to 8 inches.
