More House Democrats want to open impeachment proceedings against President Trump are growing.  Many Democrats are angry that former White House counsel Don McGahn ignored a subpoena to testify before a House committee yesterday. Speaker Nancy Pelosi will discuss the issue with her caucus this morning. 

Governor Polis will be putting pen to paper on the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act today.  A bill signing is set for noon at the Women's Foundation of Colorado in Denver.  The legislation was passed by lawmakers in this year's session.  The law will allow companies to be punished if they knowingly pay one gender less than another.  Underpaid employees would also be compensated.
