House GOP won’t budge, kills civil unions measure, 37 other bills
DENVER -- When Tuesday began, House Republicans had a difficult choice: to allow Democrats to be the heroes for passing legislation recognizing same-sex civil unions or to play the villains themselves for killing it. After a brief flash of drama on the House floor, Republicans decided to play the villains, calling an immediate recess as soon as Democrats attempted to bring the civil unions measure up for debate, and never going back on the floor, letting the civil unions measure die along with more than three dozen other bills.
