Correction: Colorado Ranks Second in Percentage of Female Legislators

In a Feb. 12 article this journal reported that the swearing-in of Rep. Karen Middleton, D-Aurora, would mean that 37.9% of Colorado legislators are women.

That is not accurate. The correct percentage, following Middleton's joining the House, is 36%.

That figure does not, as the Feb. 12 article said, lead the nation. Vermont leads with 37.8% female legislators. Colorado ranks second.

We apologize for the mistake.
