Colorado Dem infighting over Pinnacol talks

State Sen. Morgan Carroll, Democrat of Aurora, is not too happy with the closed-door privatization talks going on between the office of Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter and Pinnacol Assurance, the workers' comp provider.

Carroll, who chaired a committee that reviewed Pinnacol last year, said the proposal should be public.

"Whatever the proposal looks like, if it's so good, why not bring it out for everyone? You know, if it's such a good idea, I think it would stand on its own merits," said Carroll in an interview after a town hall meeting last week.

Or, better yet, why not leave Pinnacol (seen as a piggy bank to backfill the state budget) alone?
