This week, senate Republicans once again tried to end the Affordable Care Act. The replacement plan, named after authors Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, needed 51 votes in order to pass. By Tuesday, it was clear there wasn’t enough support and so the vote did not happen.

After visiting Frisco and Edwards, Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet will hold a town hall at the Glenwood Springs library at 5:15 p.m.. Space is limited. He will be taking questions from the audience at random.

 

Aspen Mayor Steve Skadron has joined 17 other elected officials around the state urging Colorado’s congressmen to support the Bureau of Land Management’s methane rule.

A letter signed by 18 mayors of cities and towns around the state was sent yesterday to Senators Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet. The letter states how the rule ensures fair return to taxpayers, improves our air quality, and cuts energy waste.

The main party candidates in Colorado’s U.S. Senate race will meet Tuesday evening on 9 News for their only televised debate of this election.

Ski Co to Open Idaho Resort

The Aspen Skiing Company is expanding its operations to Idaho. The ski operator closed on a property in Ketchum and plans to build a new hotel, modeled after an existing one in Aspen.

The Ski Co will develop a new Limelight Hotel close to Sun Valley’s River Run base of the ski area Bald Mountain. The Limelight in Aspen features large guest rooms, an expansive lounge, a lobby restaurant, and adventure programming for guests.

In a statement, the Ski Co’s Vice President for Hospitality Don Schuster says the company feels the timing is right to grow the “Limelight brand” and that downtown Ketchum is an ideal location.

The hotel in Idaho will include more than 100 hotel rooms and eleven free market residential units. The Skiing Company purchased the Limelight hotel in Aspen in 2010 from the Paas/Woolery families.
