EAGLE, Colo. (AP) – A money-saving bill to merge the Colorado Division of Wildlife and Colorado State Parks is awaiting the governor’s signature.

Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper planned to sign the merger bill at a ceremony Monday afternoon at Sylvan Lake State Park in Eagle.

Hickenlooper suggested the merger to save the state some $3 million to $4 million a year. The change is due to take effect in July.
